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

Don't look at the bus: Ipswich Falcon

East Lancashire Coachbuilders took functional ugliness to such an extreme it almost became pleasant. Secretly for once I quite admire these unusual quirky add-on designs to the more common equivalent unremarkable jelly-mould profile usually seen. No doubt Ipswich's well maintained and attractive green and cream livery did much to give these cut-and-fold bodied Dennis Falcons of about 1981 a bit more quality
