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

Birkenhead was one of Massey Bros best customers and when after bodying some Atlanteans the Wigan bodybuilder started giving it's buses a less sleek angular look it hardly mattered here as they still looked superb in this blue and cream based livery. I remember this day well as it was hot and from every open window seemed to boom 'Saergent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. Although nine MCW bodied Daimler Fleetlines had been tried in 1964 solid ultra-reliable Leyland PD2.40's like No.150 GCM 150E continued to be the choice here for now.
