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

A Merseyside Ribble Leyland PD3 nearing the end

Even though they did not have the subtle charms of the earlier Burlingham built generation true Ribble fans would not find anything wrong with the looks of these full-fronted MCW bodied Leyland PD3's like No.1789 dating from 1962 but hardly looking it's age.

Where (in Liverpool?) was this taken?

I was going to add that it was taken at Litherland but someone would be bound to come along and tell me I'm wrong. It was certainly in that area. The trouble is I used to have a camera with me when I was driving and I'd jump out anywhere if I could to get something this nice so they don't always have much sense of place but I can usually remember!

The picture of 1789 is on Stanley Road in Bootle, outside the Strand Shopping Precinct.
