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

I smell sardines: The Boat Trip
I've a feeling this was taken at a delightfully untidy small boat harbour near Villa Real where our party went on a Sardine boat trip but I might be wrong. Anyway the coach in 1984 although not yet flying RN colours but carrying it's number No.9482 was bodied by Caetano and was probably a Volvo. Those fresh sardines we ate on our return were mighty delicious.
