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

Strathclyde Atlantean boud for Easterhouse

Like it's Scottish rival Edinburgh the city of Glasgow had a large fleet of Alexander bodied Leyland Atlanteans but here they never looked quite as lovely as in the nation's Capital's immaculate madder and white livery. Strathclyde PTE introduced this rather unexciting 'tomato soup' red colour which later moved on to Greater Manchester as well with the transfer of the manager within the First Group.
