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

Barnsley: NBC Variety
I feel inclined to think that buses during the NBC reign look much better when photographed in black and white. The newer types we got used to fairly quickly but as far as the older buses were concerned the bland Toy-Town image was rather depressing, which looking back was a shame as the vast fleet operated a lot of interesting vehicles. Some operators were more interesting than others like Yorkshire Traction whose varied fleet can be sampled by this glorious scene of parked buses at the main bus station.
