Pauline was an auburn-haired beauty from Wales. ToCo tells us she was a gym teacher who got fed up with the antics of classroom hooligans and re-trained as a short-hand typist who ended up as a travel agent. Brewster also says she had “a passion for amateur dramatics” – so she would have loved changing into costumes. This may, or may not, account for why she was unique in the annals of Town and Country publication for one reason.
In five of the appearances she made – and a dozen or so photos that appeared in no publication seen so far – she is wearing full school uniform.
Not the ‘pretend’ school, uniform sometimes seen in pin-up mags – but the genuine article; the Sixth Former school uniform of the 1960s – gymslip (sometimes skirt and blouse), stockings and navy blue knickers. Non-British readers may not understand why this should be in the least erotic, so a word of explanation. Girls in school uniform are something of a cult in the UK, not because we are a nation of perverts − but partly because of the series of films of that era (the St. Trinian’s films) and partly because of happy memories. Indeed, in the ‘70s and ‘80s, there was a very popular London restaurant called School Dinners, frequented by gentlemen from the City, who, despite bad memories of the food they were dished up with at school, were served by waitresses all clad like Pauline Street disporting herself at the seaside.
School food apart, there were also more pleasant memories for the boys of that generation. The first fumbling contact with a girl’s underwear in those days often involved a pair of school knickers – seemingly unsexy in essence − but nonetheless arousing because of the context of naughtiness.
Pauline had fantastic legs, and set those RHT stockings off to perfection. She made only six appearances, as mentioned wearing her gymslip, navy blue knickers and stockings in most of them; and always at the same spot in South Wales – Barry Island, either at the docks or in the seafront colonnades on the shore of Whitmore Bay. There is something almost haunting about those photos, vaguely reminiscent of that iconic 1960s TV series called The Prisoner.
