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

Lisbon Marvila Campelo and some Chestnuts

I'm sure my photo site fans from Portugal will forgive me when I say that I indulged myself on certain bus types like these the last twenty or so AEC Regent double-deckers still in service in the country's Capital in 1984. Also of course this is rather an interesting view with now ancient British BMC and French Renault cars plus the motorised hand-cart with a light down below for night driving: At first I thought it was something like prawns in those trays because of the colour but of course it couldn't be in that heat. Thanks Durante for telling me they were chestnuts, I haven't seen those for a while either except at Winter Fairs
