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

London & Country
No doubt the now demolished warehouse belonging to Bishop and Sons Removals was inadvertently photographed many times along with the generations of distinctive Green Line Coaches that paused on Ecclestone Bridge in Vicoria on their marathon journeys that crossed the Capital. By the Nineties not only had a new covered bus station been built to cater for the former NBC Commuter network London Country had become London and Country with a bright new livery by Ray Stenning which made even these awkward looking East-Lancs bodied Volvos look attractive.
