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

Leicester was the last stronghold for the Midland Red built D9 double-decker with a small fleet of about thirteen working on city services from Southgates Street Garage. They were finally delicened on the 31st December 1979 a few months after this view was taken on Burley Way alongside St. Margarets Street Bus Station. 5326 Reg. 6362 HA was headed for New Parks on the 93 one of their regular runs.
