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

Wallsend Shipyard

It's a pity the speed of the approaching Tyneside PTA Alexander bodied Leyland Olympian spoilt the sharpness of this view where I tried to get a bus and the huge cranes, a now sleeping relic from a once prosperous shipbuilding industry on the Tyne. I guess it must have been quite noisy here at times but what view these houses had out of their bedroom window when the Geordies got up in the morning!
