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

Colourful Plymouth Bretonside

I often complain about the boring or lack of livery on buses and coaches today. As can be seen in this view taken in Plymouth a couple of years ago buses still make it a more colourful place. I suppose they're more pastel and industrial rather than painted to suit the bus but the saddest thing is that we see the same livery of the big groups like First and Stagecoach from the top of Scotland to the tip of Cornwall and once there was a whole variety of tour operators but today there's little else of any size except Shearings.
