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

Liverpool: The nice thing about nostalgia

The good thing about nostalgia is that the amount of time lapsing doesn't neccesarily make it better. I see the Eighties and Nineties as even if not a 'Golden Age' it was certainly an interesting and colourful 'Indian Summer' for the bus industry here in the UK. It was full of nice surprises like the former Merseyside PTA buying quantities of former London Titan B15 double-deckers. Liverpool has seen various less than beautiful liveries but that worn on 2354 was perhaps the best.
