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

Eastern Counties Bristol Lodekka FS
In the early Eighties I was lucky enough to visit Norwich regularly enough to photograph Eastern Counties Bristol Lodekkas still enjoying their Indian-Summer as those and other half-cab types were fast disappearing everywhere apart for those die-hards the RM in London. Norwich still ran quite a few especially the front-entrance FLF but there were some more traditional short rear-entrance FS buses too like FS 105 carrying a V for it's it's allocation to Vulcan Road one of three garages in the East Anglian principal city.
