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

Funny Bus

A funny bus indeed, but I'm sure the double meaning was wasted on most of passengers in Copenhagen who must have been taken in thinking this might be a proper London bus just because it was a red half-cab double-decker. But maybe that was not such a bad thing as it ensured the survival at least for the timebeing of a few more more comparitively neglected provincial bus types like this bristol Lowdekka giving them a half chance of ongoing preservation. Taken in 1982 I wonder if it still survives.
