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

Plymouth Milehouse Depot

Plymouth Corporation painted Park-Royal Leyland Atlantean No.79 like this to celebrate it's anniversary and in a simplified form it became the fleet standard for a time in the Eighties. I was lucky enough to get around the depot that Sunday as they were obviously in a good mood that day. The Milehouse Depot showed more links with it's 100 year heritage as not only did these modern buses sit on Victorian cobble-stone sets there was still evidence of the system's tram rails.
