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

A tight Squeeze in Monte Gordo

With it's British Holidaymakers and very English looking buses like this RN Utic bodied AEC Regal this could almost be Britain but obviously double white lines had yet to arrive in the 1984. Monte Grodo was a fast growing resort and as well as boasting white sandy beaches and waving palm trees it could also enjoy the sophistication of a casino.

This bus is actually leaving the little bus station of Vila Real do Sto. António, located at the ferry to Spain, across the Guadiana River. Nowadays there is a bridge over the Guadiana and the ferry terminal, as well as the connecting railway station are in poor condition. Fantastic photo!
