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

Maidstone & District: Highbridge Bristol VR
I don't know if it was because they were not so familiar but the comparatively scarce taller highbridge ECW bodied Bristol VR buses supplied to the National Bus Company looked rather top-heavy and odd. As well as the well known Luton north of London there is also a district bearing the same name in the Medway where Maidstone and District had a former tram shed it inherited from Chatham and District. It was nice to see that in the mid-Eighties there were still plenty of bus services passing this spot.
