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

Leeds: A gentle retirement for an old girl
Even in semi-retirement as a trainer this Bristol FS6G still looks presentable which is no doubt mainly due to the good care it was given when it was FRD 168 with W. Alexander and Sons Fife who put it on the road in 1963. In the mid-Eighties it was still hard at work in Leeds where they were enjoying some welcome sunshine.
