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

Freshly back from Crosville Sealand Road

Although not the favourite buses of my youth, sparkling in the warm Summer sunshine of 1967 and looking spotless and pristine in a new coat of paint it was obviously enough to make me raise my camera to take a photo of this a Bristol powered Crosville Lodekka FLF of 1962 at the operator's large vehicle Queens Ferry Garage just outside Birkenhead. Here there was an allocation of 93 with only Wrexham boasting 128 and the smaller Liverpool with 105 both topping the 100 mark and being bigger.(Allocations from Ian Allan 1965)
