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

Blackpool: A meeting of Eighties Volvos

As a holiday destination Blackpool might be continuing it's long slow decline but it is still a favourite for weekend trippers in the summertime. This attracts coaches from far and wide like these two Volvo's in the period after deregulation which spawned a healthy variety of colourful and different approaches to livery. EWV 665 D-GHY probably 2506 was new to the recently Privatised Badgerline as part of it's first big order for full-sized buses which also included similar D10M buses to this example branded for the express service to the seaside town.
