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

Arriva washes whiter?

Despite the dull damp weather in Manchester last Saturday this remarkably clean looking Optare Solo still managed to look quite cheerful which is more than could be said for the somewhat more grubby Stagecoach Plaxton bodied Volvo coach heading out of the city on it's way to Preston and Sunny Blackpool. Of course as I'm sure as Stagecoach would point out this is just one view, but it does illustrate how impressive a clean bus can be at times.
