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

Liverpool Green Lane looks white to me

Liverpudlians have a strange sense of humour which fits the city well as it can be rather a surreal place as the opposite seems to happen to everywhere else. For instance normally when it snows the snow ploughs and gritters come out but in Liverpool they just take one look out of the window and go on strike. You're right tt must have been during the Derek Hatton era. But the white stuff certainly made an interesting wintry picture of the many buses parked up at Merseyside's Green Lane depot. I wonder how many drivers didn't turn up for work that day either, but as you can see some of us had to work. Fortunately the snow only seemed to fall on Merseyside so the rest of my journey back to the Midlands was clear. Nearest the camera is Willowbrook bodied Leyland Atlantean 1847 but also in this view is another one No.1861 as well as the more common Alexander version here No.1580.
