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

Liverpool: Tall buildings & tall bus.

Because of the heavy solid looking early reinforced concrete architecture from the same period of the early C20 and grid-like street patterns downtown Liverpool has a very American feel and it could be say Chicago perhaps. Hardly surprising then that people often compare the city to New York and in this Eighties view it looks as if 1139 UKA590H a rather ungainly tall looking Alexander bodied Atlantean is trying to become a skyscraper whilst the newer East Lancs bodied version has a less racy feel.
