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

A First-PMT Lance Verde in Crewe

Some of the local area liveries chosen by the First Group were not very nice at all, but even though apart from being a bit drab and depressing I never hated what we knew as 'Barbi', but 'Barbi2' as worn on older buses was a bit of a washed-out looking mess. Fortunately a bus which would qualify First-PMT 861 at Plaxton Verrde bodied Dennis Lance was still looking pretty good in it's old PMT colours when captured at Crewe, and I'm sure a few more people might want to ride on the buses in the Potteries were they to look a bit more friendly like their own buses again.
