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

Jaywalking: Another close shave!

The laws in European countries are very much the same you might think or maybe some are enforced whilst others are not. When it comes to crossing roads in Britain we have a very easygoing attitude whereas in places like Germany and Switzerland this kind of behaviour would if you are lucky just get you a good ticking off from a policeman. Anyway I'm glad our nanny state hasn't taken all the danger out of life. A familiar sight in Stafford are a small batch of four or five of these short Plaxton Pointer Dennis Darts used on the No1 Service by Arriva which crosses the town.

They are indeed based in Poole, and one of South Dorset's interesting coach firms, especially so for the Beulas and Noge coaches they operate.

Poole's other interesting operator, Roadliner, may have a somewhat shaky future. See here
