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

Bowens in Plymouth

It seems a little quieter these days and with reduced interest but Plymouth's Bretonside Bus Station has during the season attracted coaches from far and wide, older ones on local day shopping excursions we still see but also once hordes front-line touring coaches from the major operators. From the Midlands came EEW125Y a DAF belonging to Bowens visiting as part of a holiday based in Torbay. To my eyes at least these Jonckheere Jubilee bodies look better as time goes on, maybe it's because they exude a bit of character something that seems lacking in many modern designs.
