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

Stafford: A new Yelloways Tiger heads for Paignton

No doubt everyone who knew them loved Yelloways of Rochdale, I certainly do. This view of a splendidly gleaming brand-new Plaxton Paramount 3500 Leyland Tiger might have reassured us that they would be here for ever. But like most of the things we loved about the bus industry progress and consolidation swept them away.
