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

Wigan: Massey bodied Leyland PD3
Both Massey Brothers and Northern Counties bodies were built in Wigan and consequently in all fairness the Corporation used to buy batches from both suppliers and of course for many years the buses were all Leyland. Pictured loading for the well known destination of Abbey Lakes like other half cab buses in the Greater Manchester fleet this still smart looking 1962 vehicle was nearing the end of it's days at the beginning of the Eighties.
