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: Almost time for home!

Sadly the sort of coaches I liked are now something of a rarity but I loved going to Blackpool where I could photograph our traditional British coaches in smart time evolved individual liveries like the smart colours of Grahams Coaches of Stoke on Trent seen on this Plaxton bodied Leyland Leopard. Of course some of these colour-schemes survive but too many coaches have a feeling of not belonging in their plain white dealer based colours.

Hi, I worked with Graham & indeed still stay in contact with him, This was Ron Taylors coach who is sadly no longer with us, could i ask that you add this to my Flickr group 'Grahams Coaches'or allow me to add it displaying your copyright

Many Thanks
Lee :-)
