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

THX 287S: Busy London stopping for a quick one

This was one of those days when I had too much work to do to stop for long so I just pulled up and took a couple of shots. The good thing about these is they avoid the more usual settings but the bad side is apart from the destination I can't usually hazard a guess as to where it was taken. However in this instance as there's a Metrobus on the 74 pulled up behind the Fleetline DMS it has to be near Putney where both of these long routes met.

The Gipsy Lane stop on Upper Richmond Road. The Ladbrokes in your photo is still in business according to Google Street View.

Thank you, it is always interesting to see how places we know have changed over the years. I imagine Ladbrokes will still be there long after most of the pubs and local post offices have closed, but who really knows what the future will bring.
