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

Burton-on-Trent: Driving Jobs for the Girls:
I wasn't a huge fan of Derby's buses and especially the current cold blue and grey which was no improvement on the more dignified traditional olive green and cream. But interest came and nicer liveries too when following the purchase of Blue Bus of Willington the Corporation added coach types including some smart AEC Reliance Plaxton grant coaches for the Blue Bus routes to Burton.
