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

Pennine of Gargrave

Pennine of Gargrave long favoured sturdy Leylands like the Leopard for the ups and down of it's services from Skipton over the Yorkshire Dales to larger towns like Burnley and Lancaster, where headed this 1971 example with Willowbrook's version of the standard BET style body. Photographed in the Eighties fortunately this attractive operator with it's distinctive orange and black buses is still with us.
