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 Square Bus: Market Square Caldas da Rainha
I know some of you love the old RN so much you won't have a wrong word said against them. So maybe my criticism that this is perhaps about the ugliest bodywork I've seen on these buses might divert your attention away from my ignorance of the chassis. More like a shed than a bus these rather angular Caetano bodies were quite common on the Portuguese trolleybuses built at the same time in the Eighties but fortunately not so prevalent on buses.
