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

In the fields buried treasure
Not too distant Alton Towers Amusement Park operates regular journeys in to Stafford for it's staff employing fairly new stock. But much older is this Leyland Titan still in Kimes livery but which was once all-red L 519 with London Transport . Spattered with red clay from muddy tracks it now carries the fruit pickers who come every year from places like Poland and Estonia working on a local Strawberry Farm.
