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

The Square Bournemouth
In Summer 1992 two Eighties double-deckers belonging to both of Bournemouth's principal operators can be seen at The Square. The Wilts and Dorset East-Lancs bodied Leyland Olympian was new to Plymouth but came with it's two sisters having worked for Stevenson's of Spath in the meantime. Bournemouth's buses were traditionally yellow and the Alexander R-Series Volvo Citybus looked very much at home here.
