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

German visitors sample M6 Motorway Food

Of course our European cousins have been coming to London, Stratford on Avon and places like Edinburgh and Bath for years but when I took this photo in about 1982 a German coach was something of an unusual sight at Hilton Park on the M6. I wonder what the smartly dressed visitors made of our latest weapon in the war to keep out the old foe, the scruffy Mecca motorway service area with it's cold greasy chips and stewed tea.
