Mary Millington Does Newport

Newportonians will be delighted to learn that Britain’s first Queen of Porn, Mary Millington, once did a photoshoot on the streets of their fair city (or town, as it was back in 1976). At the time Millington was the squeeze of Penarth porn baron, David Sullivan (aka Dai Top Shelf). It was for one of his illustrious magazines, Playbirds, that she did this 5 photograph spread. Three years later Mary committed suicide. If you want to pay homage to this momentous coming together of porn and Gwent you need to get hold of Playbirds Vol 1, No 2, 1976.
