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

Rawtenstall: Asda Free Bus
Two East Lancashire bodied Leyland Titan PD3 buses pass one another whilst operating a free service to a local supermarket in Rawtenstall. Of course this did not need a conductor so we have Asda to thank for extending the lives of these otherwise obsolete but still fine buses into the Eighties. 1965 bus No.37 still wore the traditional application of the maroon and cream livery whilst the other example carried a more up-to-date but less attractive version of the same colours.
