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

Eccleston Road: Journey's End

No doubt all the British express coach drivers will know this impressive approach to Victoria Coach Station in London and also have a tale or two to tell about the cheap digs and hotels they had to use nearby in the big bad Capital. However this relatively local Hastings a District Duple bodied Leyland Leopard would normally be able to return home the same day with commuters.  On this occasion though the Kent driver was  parading along sunny Eccleston Road on private hire work yet almost by habit still taking the very familiar route making it something of a 'busman's holiday; no doubt,.
