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

Time for a quick pint before we hit the M1

They were not quite so strict as they are today I suspect or rather one was probably less likely to get found out but I expect the crew of this Duple Dominant bodied Leyland Leopard of National Travel NW URN 209R were not getting sozzled and only calling in to drop off their bags at their cheap overnight digs in London. Dumbing out the sound of the ceaseless traffic no doubt being above a pub a pint or two would have been most welcome before climbing the narrow wooden stairs to bed. With rather a typical spit-and-sawdust London working-men's look about it . The White Ferry House is or was on the corner of Sutherland Street close to Victoria Coach Station.
