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

Parish Motor Services in Oswestry

I don't get about so much these days but a little trip up to North Wales for a bus/rail day at Llangollen with Wag and Mick on JHA227L took us passed Oswesty where in about 1982 I took this shot of Parish's Plaxton bodied Bedford SUX614S. At the time I looked down on poor old Bedfords and Fords but fortunately I was keen on wasting a bit of film so I could quickly go up in the darkroom and get them developed and a few of these more mundane examples got recorded which turned out to be fortunate.
