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

Goodbye to Manchester

I was sorry to see the last of the half-cabs go and especially as they had plenty of life left in them like these former Greater Manchester Leyland PD2 Titans heading off to that place which buses most dread, Barnsley or maybe even Rotherham. The first bus with an East-Lancashire body came from the Stockport Corporation fleet which the other former trainer still looking quite smart came from Wigan and carried a body by Massey Brothers built in the town.
