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

J210 HFR. Proudly bearing those Stagecoach Stripes

Looking back at them now maybe those Stagecoach Stripes weren't so awful after all and they seemed almost to belong on Alexander products like this new Olympian seen in Lancaster where everyone was enjoying some pleasant weather. This of course used to be Ribble territory but this North Lancashire area and The Lakes became amalgamated with what had been Cumberland which Stagecoach also owned. Their buses carried local names at this time and this naturally was 'Stagecoach Lancaster' something that creeps in and out of fashion, but sadly we have yet to lose that tight grip on corporate liveries as none of them are so wonderful we want to see them literally everywhere.
