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

When I was a teenager I spotted all the red Routemasters with I discovered later the exception of RM 1108, but there were another fourteen very early ones I needed too including RM 27 seen here about to cross The Thames which couldn't be seen as when these former West Ham Routemasters went for their first major overhaul they disappeared inside Aldenham Works for a number of years. By the time I snapped this one looking quite smart in the Nineties my spotting days were a distant memory.
