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

Volvo Ailsa V1 at Potters Bar Garage

Not my best photo but when we come across something interesting we have to have a go even if the sun is in the wrong direction. Potters Bar garage greatly supplemented it's rather ordinary fleet of MCW Metrobuses with a fleet of mostly second-hand Volvo Ailsas and also ran Alexander bodied V1 A101SUU one of three slightly ugly and unsuccessful trial buses.
