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

GMPTE 5891: Old Stockport buses soldior on

Some buses were worth stopping for to grab a quick photo. At this time in 1980 the days were numbered for the solid but very elegant East Lancs bodied former Stockport leyland PD3's like MHA892G still working for GMPTE. The damp grey winter day just adds to the nostalgic feel of this view, which is also what I felt when I first printed it.
