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

Green Lane: The Numbers Game
In the early Eighties a collection of withdrawn and idle former Liverpool Corporation buses could be found at the bottom of the yard of Merseyside PTE at it's Green Lane Garage. Of particular interest is the fact that two of these Mero-Cammell bodied Leyland Panthers carry FKF 946G and No.1010 seems to have gained the front panel off 1067 a few bues further down. But I don't suppose it mattered much as like FKF 889F their next destination was probably the scrapyard.
