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

An easy paint-job for 121

With just the substitution of green paint for red paint new blinds and legal lettering and Leicester No.121 was ready to become No.121 in the Ipswich fleet. However this Leyland 680 engined ECW bodied Bristol RELL was still in pretty good condition so I don't expect anyone was aware. Indeed I'm sure the rate payers of Ipswich Borough would have been pleased to see how a little common sense can save a few pence.
