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

Leyland Atlanteans as far as the eye can see!
Taken in 1982 I had to ask to visit the yard of Plymouth City Transport at Milehouse where these impressive buses were parked in rows but I remember way back in 1967 there used to be a public right of way going right through here before the age of wanton vandalism and other crimes. Sorry I had to retrieve this one from a scrapbook, and as you can see not only do Playmates get staples through their pride and joy so do the Plymouth Brethren!
