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

Southport Driver Training bus

A former Southport Corporation driver training bus outside the garage at Blowick. Thankfully a few former PSV's like this red and cream bus managed to escape the horrible Merseyside PTE verona-green. Southport was regarded as one of the nicest Corporation fleets in the country. Even though the red and cream buses have gone a reminder of the good old days can be seen on the street as the town still paints it's lamp posts in those colours.
