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

HT: Helsingor-Bussen Volvo VBK
Although takeover's are rather a sad business for the enthusiast they do often bring some interesting variety to large standardised fleets such as when the new enlarged Copenhagen area authority called HT on it's formation inherited a number of these VBK bodied Volvos from Helsingor-Bussen in 1974 and No.5019 dating from 1971 was still wearing it's former grey livery when photographed in 1982.
