I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Guide Friday started here in Stratford upon Avon offering open-top double-deck tours to the visitors and become so successful that as well as providing the same service in other tourist rich cities in Britain it expanded into Mainland Europe as well. It was quite remarkable really as all it's vehicles were second-hand time expired buses like this thirty-year-old former Bournemouth Daimler Fleetline trying to work The Stratford Tour in about 1994.
