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

Bury Corporation Liveried Wright bodied Volvo

The bus scene around Manchester has been enhanced by a number of buses turned out by the First Group in colours from the past. These angular Wright bodies seem to carry them rather well especially compared to when it has been done to the Alexander 400 series of buses. Instead of just plonking on standard fleet numbers this Bury based bus looks very attractive as it includes the right gold numerals too.

Wonder what happened to the driver of the black Clio - parked on double yellows in a bus lane!

It was a Sunday so he probably had a bit more time before being nabbed by the police I expect.
