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

Bournemouth: Britain at it's best
They're all quite different but Bournemouth is probably Britain's top quality traditional seaside holiday resort even if it is perhaps only the more balmy warmer climate that makes it score points over say Scarborough on the exposed East Coast or Llandudno in Wet Wales Also a huge plus was that until very recently the local council still operated it's own bus fleet in the town's traditional yellow colours including of course a number of Daimler Fleetlines and some dating from the days when British buses were still a very British affair. In 1992 Alexander bodied No.121 was Eighteen years old and still working hard for it's living.
