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

Get away for Christmas?
Well today you wouldn't be able to fly with Freddie Laker or even travel on one of these Greenline Berkhof Everest bodied Leyland Tigers wearing a typical Ray Stenning designed scheme for the Gatwick Airport-London Flightline service. It was numbered BTL 9 in the London Country (South West) fleet which by this time in the Nineties had been re-christened London & Country. It is seen on the corner by Victoria Coach Station, one of my favourite spots for photography in London.
