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

A United Olympian leaves Newcastle for Middlesborough

The last time I went to Newcastle on Tyne I gave myself exactly one hour to take some photographs. Unfortunately the weather also chose that one hour in the day to throw it down with thundery rain so my efforts were restricted to a few rushed views. However the beauty of black and white photography is one can catch the mood of the day and in it's bright red and white dual-purpose livery this ECW bodied United Leyland Olympian A233 GHN with the weak sun fighting through the clouds looked rather splendid on the still damp roads.
