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

Manchester: How liveries have changed

These once familiar liveries are but a memory now and surprisingly even though I detested it at the time I've come to almost like those Stagecoach stripes on certain types of bodywork especially the more squared designs that typified the operator like Alexander R'Series, The Dash and of course these Mercs. First's unexciting tomato soup garb didn't look any more appetising or bright with blue looking like purple.
