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

Next time take the bus

In the middle of Summer it is usually very hot in Portugal and it cannot be much fun riding a bike in the rush hour with all the potholes and vehicle fumes to contend with. During the Eighties Porto like other towns in this country took some new single-deck Italian Lancia Trolleybuses with Portuguese bodywork like No.68 pictured when still quite new.
