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

An Innocent Age: More of my favourite pics

Just think it was not that many years ago when no-one thought twice about taking pictures like this one of a pack of tiny cheerleaders alighting from an old coach at Meir in Stoke on Trent. The Harrington Cavalier bodied AEC Reliance bought by Flights Tours in about 1963 was a real classic though, and now owned twenty years later by Halls Coaches, still looked tastefully elegant and presentable despite it's good age
