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

We've found it: It must be Plymouth Bretonside
The entrance to Plymouth's Bretonside Bus Station is rather a mess with all those barriers and confusing signs to drive in to. Apart from some gorgeous weather the only redeeming feature seems to be the First Group's Plaxton-Bodied Dennis double-deckers painted in a special Mayflower Livery which somewhat echoes that used not so long ago by the Privatised Southern National before it was bought out by First and painted into what we call Barbi.
