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

A Berresford's Atlantean

As well as having a wealth of old buses dumped at the rear of it's Cheddleton premises there were always used new arriving entering service, some lasting several years others lasting maybe a few months. This former Bournemouth Leyland Atlantean of 1964 with a pseudo Alexander body by MCW was a familiar sight in Hanley so I imagine it was one of the lucky ones. Next to it a Plaxton Panorama coach is being prepared for service and probably a Leopard as they were popular here too.
