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

Southdown: An old friend emerges from it's leafy green sleep

Following the break up of the National Bus Company at the end of the Eighties Southdown's return to something like it was before Nationalisation felt quite heartening. The fact that it only went so far in recreating the old magic of what was once one our favourite operator's can quickly be dismissed with sorrow for almost in the blink of an eye it was gone again. This time the apple-green and cream on Nationals like 104 would be smothered in those much derided Stagecoach stripes.
