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

Boots: Too good to walk in!
It's a good job we have a good bus service in Stafford provided by Arriva as I don't think this girl would be able to walk too far in those magnificent new shiny boots. The bus is a Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart one of a batch of eight 2329-2337 (R329-337 TJW) partly funded by the local council to work the busiest cross-town service No.9 which serves a large housing estate on one side and the University and Hospital on the other. There was no 2333 R333 TJW as the licensing authority kept the more desirable numbers back in case private buyers wanted them.
