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

Chester Guy Arab 42
A fond look back to Chester City Transport whose very traditional smart dark maroon almost brown half-cab Guy Arab buses once graced this historic city with their charm. Captured on film in the early Eighties it looks as though this Northern Counties bodied bus had just come out of the paint-shop ready for hopefully it's last couple of years. Very typical of the fleet were also Daimler Fleetlines with the same make of bodywork to be followed by more of the same on the later Dennis Dominator chassis.
