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

The Yellow Brick Road: Yelloways

I have Family living in Devon so the journey to Tavistock not too far from Plymouth has been a regular one. I've driven, taken the train or even National Express coaches. But my fondest memories were the days when Mother was alive, and I mention this as it would have been her Birthday today, as one could go all the way on one of Yelloways fine Plaxton bodied AEC Reliance coaches. Also as well as brief halts like here at Taunton there was also a meal break at Bristol Marlborough Street Bus Station where I could easily use up a whole roll of film.
