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

Eastern Counties: Kings Lynn in 2001
It's amazing what an attractive livery will do to improve these rather functional looking Wright Handybus bodied Dennis Darts. As is the custom within the big groups older buses get relegated to the uet backwater areas like First's rural Norfolk of Eastern Counties and in the days before even old buses had to wear a version of Barbi this former red London Bus was happily trundling around Kings Lynn.
