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

A216 BJR: When firms like Primrose flowered

It would be easy to mistake this for a recent photo as this Duple Laser bodied Leyland Tiger has been preserved in livery of the Tyneside operator Primrose. In fact it was taken in about 1990 as it prepared to enter Lancaster Bus Station in the days before Deregulation created the virtual monopoly we see today on long distance express services.
