The precursor to the Parliament heels and hose genre of magazines were the magazines self-published by Elmer Batters in the late 1950s. Batters was ahead of his time, focusing on what he personally was obsessed with and eventually everyone else (the big, slick magazines publishers) caught on. Here are Sheer Delights, Leg-O-Rama and Black Silk Stockings featuring some of his favorite girls from his stable of models. Always great photographs cover to cover. Batters later years at Parliament will follow in a separate post.
