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

A little rain must fall & it's Wayning Rooney in Manchester

On a day little this a bit of brevity is not such a bad thing. The foul weather could be something to do with it being Wimbledon Tennis Ladies Final Day but so far the reality here at home is better and if I don't hurry I'm in danger of missing it. In front I think is a Northern Counties bodied Volvo but the bus coming the other way down a wet Oxford Road is a Alexander AX400 Series Dennis belonging to Finglands, once one of many Manchester Independents but now a part of the East Yorkshire group.
