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

Royal Blue paused at Yeovil

Yeovil Station September 1966 when I started at a new school in Somerset, another view taken with my primitive Ilford Sporty camera of Royal Blue Bristol LS 2214. This was the nearest town but once I have exhausted the bike rides my weekend day out explorations thumbing-it took me as far as Plymouth, Cheltenham, Reading, and Portsmouth. With a cheeky smile and a college-scarf around your neck it was so easy to hitch-hike in those days when the world was perceived as a safer more friendly place.
