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

More from Barlaston 2008
Bus rallies serve a number of functions for as well as enthusiasts showing off their pride and glory from the past the big groups like Arriva use local events to show off their latest buses. Also as well as stands selling photographs books and model buses dealers also sell hard to come by spares which often command high prices. At the end of the day it's the people one meets and seeing once more beautiful old vehicles like this wonderful Royal Blue Bristol L6B coach which would have spent much of it's working life travelling between Cornwall and Devon to London.
