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

Have I No Pride!

No I don't care if it is PINK when I'm taking buses and girls. The pastel shades chosen by the First Group for some of it's special liveries might not be very subtle but they make a pleasant change from all that grey. These Mercedes minibuses are getting quite rare now but they are still popular in South West England where rugged small buses are useful. Seen at Plymouth S529RWP started life on First's Worcester City Services which it inherited with Midland Red West.
