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

A popular attraction for the visitors of Plymouth has been a boat trip to the Naval Dockyard and here in the late Eighties an orange and cream Smith's Happiways Van-Hool bodied Leyland Tiger heads the queue. Later this company would become the familiar Shearings we know today with that distinctive blue livery.
