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

The once Bristol VR operated First 81c 'Tortpoint Ferry' Service from Plymouth gives the operator an excuse to indulge us with even more of those slightly sickly fruit yogurt Barbi style colours. However in much of the country these Mercedes mini-buses are becoming more of a rarity but here in the West Country these rugged cheap to run vehicles are still something of a favourite with both First and private operators like Western Greyhound.
