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

Rossendale Transport in Bolton

Of the many local Municipal bus companies in Britain sadly few remain. Almost every large town in Lancashire had one including Bolton. But by the time this view was taken in the late-Nineties it too was just a memory. However like the seaside town of Blackpool another survives in the shape of Rossendale formed from the old Rawtenstall Corporation. Since Deregulation it had bought many second-hand vehicles but this Alexander Royalist bodied Volvo Olympian had been new.
