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

Maidstone & District Dominators

I never really got into gadgets like zoom lenses but I must admit that if one finds an interesting view to scan the results can be quite good. I like this view of a Willowbrook bodied Dennis Dominator hard at work climbing Star Hill in Rochester for Maidstone & District. Like Potteries this operator with a demanding terrain had been chosen by the NBC to carry out trials with Metrobus Mk2 buses and Dominators alongside the normal Bristol VR. Even though the NBC stayed with Leyland and standardised on the forthcoming Olympian additional second-hand Dennis's arrived at M&D which themselves had been subject of type trials on Merseyside for the PTE.
