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

Eight Five Years but Are Happy Days Ending?

I've been told there are rumours in the press that another long established coach business is about to be sold off. This time it looks like the Austin Family who have been running buses in the Stafford area since 1927 are about to sell out to relative newcomer Leon's. Like many Independents the firm took to lightweight Fords in the Seventies but with the motorway-age as well as heavyweights like Volvo's and Scania's along came come in-between DAF's as well like E339EVH.
