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

English Electric Works Service

A 1962 PMT Willowbrook bodied AEC Reliance makes it's way through Stafford on an extended works service to the main English Electric works on the Lichfield Road in about 1969. In the early Sixties the company was splitting it's yearly twenty bus saloon contract equally between Leyland and AEC. When English Electric was in it's prime in the days before the advent of general car ownership in the rush-hour there was a bus almost every five-minutes on the Number 10 Hanley-Stoke-Stafford.
