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

Anyone for an Expresso?
Obviously this very impressive looking high-floored Volvo B10R coach with unknown bodywork belonging to Resendo Yiagans spent most of it's working life doing an express service between Portugal's two principal cities of Lisbon and Porto also stopping at historic Braga. On this occasion though it was occupied ferrying relieved tourists after some long journey to their hotel in Portugal's Capital where I was also staying that warm night in 1984.
