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

Niddries: Day trip to Blackpool

The third of my four boarding schools was at Great Budworth in Cheshire and for our transport needs Niddries was chosen. In those days they had Plaxton bodied Bedfords including a Leyland 0400 powered VAL. By the Eighties unlike Northwich Town they had graduated to the Fist-Division with thisVolvo B10M with the more attractive first stle of Duple Laser.
