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

No KOIvula is nothing to do with Koi Carp it's the colourful Finish language as is the Destination 'Rovaniemi'. One thing I am certain of is that the small expensive Nordic country was a bit off the beaten track otherwise we would have all flocked there to see it's interesting buses and coaches that all had a distinctly local flavour like this Lahti 320 Scania coach seen in Copenhagen in 1982.
