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

Once when Hereford Bus Station used to be full of bright red BMMO Midland Red buses one hardly noticed that it resembled a cattle market. Now under NBC management by the Eighties most of it's activities seemed to be confined to the city itself and what was left of the company's once extensive network of country services which used the bus station had been left to be picked up by Independents like Bengry's Primrose Motor Services of Leominster using mostly secondhand lightweight Bedford and Ford coaches.
