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

I used to love arriving at somewhere like Stockport where all the buses of  Manchester and Stockport Corporation plus of course North Western like on some 'model layout'  used to appear from and gather at every corner of the central Mersey Square. The town's ordered proper bus station built in the Eighties nearby and thankfully not lost under some horrible multi-storey car park is not unpleasant but it cannot boast the delights of this rare 1960 Longwell Green Leyland PD2 PJA921 that could almost be missed amongst the other gems and typography. Although based at Bristol, Longwell Green was normally associated with South Wales as the various Corporations chose it for new bus especially Newport.
