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

Last Year at Meadowhall
A year has gone by since the last bus rally at Meadowhall and that's where I'm off to today. Former local Leyland PD2 buses with Yorkshire built Roe bodies from Leeds ferry people to the Transport Museum in Sheffield. It should be a nice day and when I get home I have Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding to look forward to. As you can see it's not that terrible being British and especially on Summer weekends when it's almost as if the old buses never went away with events and rides to enjoy.
