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

What a Guy! One rescued from the bottom of the pile
The nice thing about publishing on a blog is that nobody minds if the images are less than perfect because it is the degree of interest that is important.

Even more remarkable was that they were still busy working during the day in 1970 when in much of the country this sort of half-cab single-decker was fading into memory..
