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

Britain: Our ugly towns

I don't suppose Ipswich is worse than anywhere else but this scene seems to sum up Britain much of the time with it's ugly faceless concrete architecture, property always up for sale or development, traffic going nowhere and of course Rain. Still fortunately even today Ipswich still has it's smart green and cream painted buses even if most of the East Lancs bodied buses were also far from beautiful like No.106, probably it a Dennis and was seen when still fairly new in the mid-Eighties.
