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

Bournemouth: Sunshine and an Oympian View
Bournemouth Yellow Buses bought some Leyland Olympians with rather strange looking Marshall bodywork and which with this 'smiley face' and playground colour combination make me wonder as if like some surreal dream it had not in fact escaped from a children's merry-go-round. Of course these twenty buses were not as famous as the much more attractive and long lived Daimler Fleetlines which were far more popular than these ungainly beasts.
