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

Who would have thought it....

When I took a photograph of these two Green Line coaches at Gatwick Airport in the mid-Eighties I would never have guessed that in the next decade both vehicles now owned by British Bus would be rebodied by East-Lancs as single-deck buses and form part of a fleet of these vehicles allocated to Midland Red North at my home town of Stafford. The Berkhof bodied coach nearest to the camera became 1728 and the shorter one by ECW became 1715.
