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

London Transport: Gillingham Street

Gillingham Street (GM) in Victoria with 64 buses was the most central of all the London Transport garages. As you can see in the early Eighties there were still plenty of Routemasters to be found and as well as having recently taken a batch of MCW Metrobuses a major feature of it's operations were the 'standee' Red Arrows of which two of the then current generation of still quite new Leyland National2's were very much in evidence.
