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

Lincoln Bristol VR: An Ugly Duckling

A jazzy unsympathetic livery did little to improve the looks of Lincoln's East-Lancs bodied Bristol VR's of which there were twenty-one in total. I always found the similar East-Lancs bodywork on the Leyland Atlantean most attractive so it must be the odd looking radiator-grill that gives this bus it's cut-and-fold cardboard model look. There were also ten of the more usual ECW bodied variety and one of these can be seen as part of this busy lunchtime street scene taken during the Eighties..
