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

We are a bit Square: Nottingham
Nottingham has long been famed for it's interesting fleet having been big enough with about 350 vehicles to order buses to it's own specification. Nottingham's double-decker Standards were usually well-rounded so one-offs like No.395, EMY 560Y with it's uncompromisingly square body was something of a contrast. Waiting to depart for Gedling one is left in little doubt that it is a Scania because it was originally a manufacturer's demonstrator.
