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 Swift view of Blackpool
As well as the more obvious transport delights that Blackpool had to offer like it's trams, Leyland PD3 half-cabs and then Routemasters, the Corporation also ran a large fleet of the comparitively rare AEC Swift. Sadly all these Marshall bodied AEC's have gone but on a sunny day we can still enjoy watching barefoot girls eating ice-cream perhaps.
