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

"And here's to you Mrs. Robinson"

I think if I had to list my favourite British Independent coach operators Robinson's would have to be in the top ten along with the likes of Yelloway, Ellen Smith, Abbott of Blackpool, Gliderways, Wallace Arnold etc. This Eighties image contrasts Duple and Plaxton coachwork on Leyland Tigers taken at Sandbach Services which served as an interchange between coaches.
