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

January Sales lifts the gloom in Wakefield

Well not quite as it's a pretty cold and depressing view that might have been helpfully enlivened had the West Riding Plaxton bodied Leyland Leopard had it's headlights on. This style of bodywork was not so common within the NBC but the bus order dates from the time when the 300 vehicle Wakefield operator was still the largest Independent in Britain with it's headquarters at the inappropriately named Belle Isle.
