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

Olympians in Lewisham

London Selkent turned out some of it's Olympians in a special coach livery with a black skirt and gold lining-out, cherished number-plate off a Routemaster and even on some more eye-catching examples, but not this particular bus polished Leyland wheel-trims. But it is still not as attractive as the smart blue and yellow painted bus belonging to the fine Independent Metrobus of Orpington. Even though the two buses look very similar they differ particularly at the front with the Metrobus example having a flat-screen and what appears to be a more sloping front than the standard ECW red bus.
