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

Tram 707: A Breezy Blackpool, nothing is going to blow this Balloon Away!

Probably if the weather was like this this Easter in Blackpool then it would be better than rain or just cloud. However with that wind it would have been chilly too but fortunately this was an August Bank Holiday and everybody was happy. The old 1930's English-Electric Balloon Tram Cars are one of the few really beautiful things you can see in a sometimes tasteless Blackpool.
