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

Stafford: Beware of Cyclists

As you can see despite the provision of cycle paths most cyclists still ride on the busy roads. Still it's not surprising as even though they seem to be everywhere they don't seem to go very far especially in the town centre unless one ends up cycling against the traffic or getting from one to the next via the pavement. It's funny though as it's only when we look at a photograph like this that we start to appreciate how green and pleasant central areas of our towns have become. Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Darts are pretty typical of the current Stafford Arriva fleet including a number of short ones like this.
