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

Liverpool: Winter Snows Early 1982
Despite it's name Green Lane is Liverpool isn't really very green at the best of times but in this scene it looks rather clean as though covered in a clean white blanket. As you can see even though the snow ploughs and gritters might refuse to come out if the road conditions are bad buses run regardless. A Leyland National2 makes it's way passed the large bus garage as it makes slow but steady progress towards Cantril Farm, or as the locals call it Cannibal Farm.
