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

North Western AEC Renown

Tucked away in it's north western corner North Western Road Car Company had one of it's largest depots with seventy buses serving this area dominated by ICI and the chemical industry plus salt. The garage had ten or eleven Park Royal AEC Renowns when I took this photo during 1966 and their duties included the routes to Warrington and Manchester.
