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 green Bristol Omnibus working for Midland Red in Stafford
In NBC years Midland Red probably because it still ran a number of now non-standard homemade BMMO buses was particularly dogged with maintanance problems resulting in a shortage of servicable vehicles. In 1979 Stafford Garage used some borrowed Leyland National buses from the nearby PMT plus this leaf-green example that came all the way from Bristol Omnibus.
