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

East Staffordshire Council Daimler 96

By the early Eighties half-cab buses were getting difficult to see outside London. Usually the last few examples were maybe still operating on perhaps just one route with clippies or like this example in Burton carrying school kids and students. Britain's 'home of brewing' is pretty flat and undemanding hence the choice of less powerful Massey bodied Daimler CCG5's like No.96 GFA96D
