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

Crich Tram Museum
Many found it hard to believe they could build a model of the world's climate and growing conditions for plants and trees in an old clay pit which they did at The Eden Project in Cornwall, but for many years just as impressive is the working tram museum at Crich in Derbyshire in an old quarry. When I went in the Nineteen-Seventies amongst the glorious reminders of the past was this former Glasgow machine.
