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

North Western 226

One of my early Ilford Sporty Pics so I can't do much about the quality. In 1966 a recently delivered Duple Commander bodied Leyland Leopard of North Western No.226 FJA 226D prepares for it's next journey from Lower Moseley Street in Manchester. Although it's showing the route number for Blackpool it is most likely heading for Llandudno on the 13.30 X24 calling at Altincham, Northwich and Chester and due to arrive at 17.45.
