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

Volvos in Lisbon

The one nearest the camera has a body by Salvador Caetano whose livery seems to echo the heavy sandstone brown of the imposing buildings and the whiteness and chrome plate of other traffic.

Hello Chris !

I find hard to find that this photo has been taken in Lisbon.

By the look of the surrondings, I would say Oporto... The stone used on the buildings is very typicall there.

Could you check where you took the photo ? Please... ;)

Best regards.

I'm glad you spotted my deliberate mistake. I'm sorry my memory is not perfect and it is indeed Porto. My latest post is another view taken at the same spot that I first posted last year. I'm sure some one likes this fleet of smart UTEC bodied AEC's, I know I do.
