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

Show Bus 2010. And a wonderful time was had by all!

Show Bus has something of a poor reputation for weather and yesterday when it wasn't raining it was pouring down. Perhaps sponsor and model maker EFE like it that way so everyone will have to shelter in their marquee and buy models. Despite the rain people were still photographing and filming the buses. I must have got soaked to the skin as I woke up this morning with webbed feet. 1n 1965 London Transport tried a number of new bus types including AEC Merlin standee buses, Leyland Atlanteans and for the green country area eight Daimler Fleetlines with Park Royal bodywork which were set to work from East Grinstead.
