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
Now a part of the National Bus Company a keen operator of the double-decker Midland Red ordered it's first batch of I think it was 90 Leyland Atlanteans having previously prefered the Daimler Fleetline. Sadly the Atlanteans were divered elsewhere and in future the company was forced to take large numbers of the Leyland National instead. Of the Atlanteans Merseyside PTA took the Alexander bodied examples whilst Maidstone and District and London and Country had the ones by Metro-Cammell. A Godstone vehicle AN 111 is pictured taking on a decent load at bromley.
