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

Buses & Girls!
Well better luck next time with the young girls. But as this view of Plymouth Bretonside demonstrates many of the folks taking coach excursions and tours are elderly. Consequently drivers have to be chosen wisely and be in tune with their needs as it is not a job for those normally on service work who are always rude or and in a hurry. Skills is a well known and long established operator from Nottingham which started shortly after World War One with a bus service. Volvo coaches were favoured in the Eighties included this Van-Hool bodied B10M-61.
