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

World Cup 1966: Where were you?

I was here at boarding school not far from Northwich in Cheshire where for such a small town North Western had a huge garage with Seventy buses. Here it served a number of similar chemical industry towns based on the local salt industry. The newer fleet was AEC particularly the Park-Royal bodied Renown of which there were eleven or twelve. Typical of the older fleet that was mostly Leyland was this attractive Weyman bodied PD2/12 of 1953. Sorry for the poor quality but this was only a junior  single action Ilford Sporty camera.
