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

Blackpool here we come!
One of my passions has always been getting photographs of especially smart Leyland and AEC coaches in smart liveries complete with manufacturers badges and wheel nut covers. One of the best places to see these of course was on a busy weekend at Blackpool as they arrived from all over the North. The fact that this Tatlock's Plaxton Panorama Elite hadn't come far no doubt didn't spoil the excitement of it's trippers who had picked a good day for their outing in the sea air for once.
