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

Brentwood Coaches No.21: ECW-Bristol VR CJH 121V
Looking more impressive than the smokey old Routemaster standing behind it on Route159 was the immaculate former Alder Valley Bristol VRTSL3-6LXB No.981 seen when in service with Brentwood Coaches at Trafalgar Square in the Nineties. However even though it might have looked slightly strange in the Capital garbed in brown and cream this vehicle was no stranger to routes into London as with it's dual-purpose coach seating in the NBC days it could be found working from the former BET-Group Aldershot Garage.
