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

Lisbon: Follow that Tram!

The rebodied and like this rather newer trams in the Lisbon fleet seemed to lack the character of the older rolling stock of up to fifty-years their senior. These single ended 'open plan' trams of nos 283-304 and 306-322 with bus seating dated from between 1954-57 weighed almost ten-tonnes and carried 26 seated passengers and the same number of standees.
