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

Northampton Corporation Transport

Towns like Northampton seem rather characterless now they've lost their distinctive buses and especially beautiful machines like this traditional timber framed Roe bodied Daimler CVG6. This bus No.267 was rather special as it was the very last vehicle of this type built for a British Operator and when it was delivered in 1968 it brought the fleet of these fine machines in the all-Daimler Northampton fleet of eight-eight up to sixty-eight buses.
