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

Chester Rally: Old history becomes History itself

It might seem inappropriate taking black and white views of preserved buses when the owners are proudly showing off the glorious old liveries. But days like this in the early Eighties become history too and since that time some of these secure looking buses might have fallen through the net and of course sadly many of the enthusiastic enthusiasts will have passed away. One can pinpoint the year from the Y-reg Berkhof bodied Dennis demonstrator making it about 1981.
