Pamela Johnston

Pamela Johnston - Spick, Span and Beautiful Britons Model.

One of the Bearsden girls, blue-eyed Pam was also a secretary in Glasgow, born in Ayrshire but worked at home and abroad. Indeed, for her time she was quite a jet-setter – people who had travelled all over Europe, Canada and the USA were very rare in those days. Her name sometimes appeared as Johnstone – with an e.

She moved to the Buffalo in the USA for a year, according to editor Brewter to take a job as curator of a museum and to be a karate expert. For once, we know that at least the time spent across the pond was true – for a very good reason; Pam was one of the very few models who actually wrote about herself. Spick 149 has a three page letter sent to ToCo whilst on her post-Christmas ’65 trip to the States, which was far from the commonplace trip it is nowadays.

She wore directoire knickers in at least three shoots − photographer Fullarton up to his old tricks again. And she was another girl he persuaded to nip upstairs to his bathroom in her undies. Wonder if he realised how famous his house would become.
