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

Leylands in The Netherlands
Once Leylands and AEC's were everywhere in the Benilux Countries. Sadly in Amsterdam and at Arnheim on the German border I saw only DAF based buses of this standard Dutch type but whilst travelling I made a brief detour to follow this the only Leyland I saw and had to get a picture. Maybe I should have gone to Rotterdam or The Hague too but even though I had to take this one against the light I got my bus and an audience.
