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

Blackpool: Shapely Bodies

Those shapely girls getting in the way again, but I also rather like the later uncompromisingly angular East Lancs bodies like this Dennis Trident in Blackpool 'Metro' green livery. Even though I went to Lancashire with some enthusiast friends in their Bedford coach for the Fleetwood Tram Sunday event last Sunday I was happier taking photographs of the ordinary buses going about their business.

Very nice picture.

You seem to have a gift of matching the colours of the people's clothes with those of the buses in your pictures!

Any idea what the strange handle thing on the upper deck of the bus is for?

That is to prevent damage from trees and on this bus it seems to look okay whilst other double-deckers look more like 'riot buses'.
