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

Berresford's Bournemouth Atlantean

Withdrawn buses far outnumbered the runners at Jim Berresford's Cheddleton premises and for many of those in service it seemed just a matter of time before they were parked up for the last time. However interest was always maintained as more recent secondhand buses arrived. By the early Eighties Leyland Atlanteans had arrived including some from Bournemouth with MCW bodies like AEL178B which at first glance could be mistaken for Walter Alexander.
