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

Walter Raleigh & The Spirit of Plymouth
Here in the Eighties there is a good turnout for the Western National Bristol LH heading for HMS Raleigh on the 81 Service with rather fewer tourists taking the Plymouth open top Leyland Atlantean for a more enjoyable breezy ride to Bovisland where there are cliff-paths, a delightful small sandy beach and wonderful views of seaborne traffic entering the harbour opposite.
