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

Wigan's Bus Garage had seen better days
Once towns like Wigan were proud of both their maroon bus fleet and garage. But by the mid-Nineties the world and it's values had changed and Melverley Street Garage looked like it's owner couldn't wait for the day Tesco came along wanting to redevelop the site so the buses could be parked in a fenced yard on harcore which is all they desrerved.
