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

Arriva Cannock Garage
I know I tend to knock the big UK bus groups and not least Arriva for it's slightly unpleasant livery. But I must also add that they and their workforce have been pretty good to me in recent times as they have let me travel with them for free on the bus to events. This shot was taken one sunny Sunday Morning as a merry band of us prepared to set off from Cannock Garage in Wright bodied VDL No.3741 for the event held at Wollaston Park in Nottingham.
