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

Northampton Wartime Utility Daimler VV 8934

Some of these old buses might look like they would not be missed but in that case one could be quite mistaken for vehicles like this Wartime Daimler from Northampton gave not only smooth gear changes but it pulled well. Even the Utility bodywork and wooden seats were not too uncomfortable for shorter journeys but of course being only 7,6ins wide meant you hoped you didn't have to share a seat with a large person. It was seen on the Lincolnshire Historic Transport Museums running day in November near Lincoln Station
