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

Southdown Rides Again
After the Nation Bus Company was re-privatised some former companies went for a new modern or snazzy image whilst others tried to recreate a spirit of the past. This Southdown did with the use of it's old apple green and cream livery but it's application and appearance did not really do a great deal to evoke the true spirit of this once much loved operator. However it was pleasing enough and helped to make this 1975 Leyland National No.69 seen in Eastbourne look rather pleasant.
