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

Not a very nice day Mister Macadam

A grey winter day in Hanley, but then again it might be summer with all that English cloud and sticky hot tar-smoke in the air. No doubt all this leaning on shovels was causing congestion at the exit of the bus station as Stonier's former Lothian Seddon Pennine CFS 109L leaves followed by a by contrast smart PMT Bristol VR. Of course these workmen would be wearing bright but as usual filthy reflective jackets today, but somehow they all seemed to survive without being rolled flat like the black macadam.
