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

Two Classics in Copenhagen

Two of my favourite vehicles are seen side by side in Copenhagen in 1982. Of course one is the quality solid looking and very sophisticated for it's time Volvo Amazon car and the other is the DAB-Leyland BL2d. There were 250 of these buses and along with the similar BL1d made up a modern fleet of 510 buses whose delivery commenced in 1964 to replace the much loved trams from the streets of the Danish capital. No.475 was from the final year's delivery in 1970 and this Leyland O680 powered bus was allocated to the HT Garage at Valby.
