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

London Suburban

With the break up of London Buses came a number of operators to take over the route contracts. At best some were just as good but most fell well short of the mark. I'm not sure how London Suburban fared but when it came to people-skills the driver of the bus I took from Islington on the 4 would be at the bottom. Because of congestion at the bus stop he had to double park which meant some elderly passengers didn't realise he was there till he was about to pull out. When he had to pull up again for them the abuse and swearing from the driver to them was simply shocking and what's worse they seemed to just take it for granted. However it was not the driver of this bus former London Buses T207 CUV207V numbered a very ambitois No.510!
