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

Blackpool, time to go home for Bassetts

Blackpool seems to be a shadow of it's former self not only because the once very frequent and much loved historic trams have gone from normal service but also there was once almost no room to park the throng on visiting coaches at holiday times whereas today there is just one not very busy coach park near the football stadium. In better times when we were also able to enjoy the sight and sounds of AEC and Leyland was this fine Duple Dominant bodied Leopard LVS 423V turned out in Bassett's subtle blue and grey livery complete with winged motifs.
