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

Bridgnorth: Tell us about it with Tellus
Midland Red North in the Nineties then owned by Drawline did away with local garage based liveries but vehicles still went on to carry the local identity like No.92 a Wellington based Ford Transit minibus carrying Tellus wording as it worked a Bridgnorth Town Service once the preserve of something more appetising like a BMMO S8 or S13. So at the time another boring old minibus was not of great interest but I thought not only of those old Midland Reds, but the composition and old-world charm made it just worth a picture. And now that era of our buses has become history too I'm so glad I did because a shot like this says a lot more about that pleasant day.
