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

Fife Buses in Dunfermline
So far I haven't posted any photographs taken in Scotland so it's about time I put that right. When I used to drive long distances the towns in Fife were regular destinations and I always had a soft spot for the smart red and cream Alexander Fife fleet. When Volvo opened it's factory in Scotland it marketed it's buses as Ailsa but by the Eighties operators were buying them as Volvo Citybuses. Also in this scene taken in Dunfermline is a Leyland Tiger which like the two double-deckers also carried bodywork by Alexander.
