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

Nottingham Standards

In Nottingham it is reputed that there are more women than men. It certainly seems to case but even if they don't interest you Nottingham's 'Standards' seemed to add variety as each delivery of buses was different. This was evident when the city built up a fleet of it's own customised Leyland Atlanteans but the unusual Danish built Leyland Lions and these Volvo D10M's saw the end of the characteristic Nottingham raked rounded fronts on double-deckers as rather more conventional buses arrived like Alexander R' Types and of course Lynx single-deckers marked a complete change in direction.
