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

Blackpool Atlantean entering Fleetwood

Not one of my sharpest I'm afraid but here's one from from 1979 when 312 a still quite new East Lancs bodied Atlantean was seen heading into Fleetwood where the tram tracks join the main carriageway on a dull summer Sunday. Still it was much better than the weather that greeted us for 'Tram Sunday' last week. Of all the many Blackpool liveries I feel this version with the crest was the smartest.
