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

Wellies at the ready in Wolverhampton for V-Fest

Last weekend brought a lot of young people into Wolverhampton for this years V-Festival at Weston Park. Indeed it must be Wolverhampton I've just spotted a bus Wright bodied Volvo BX61 LJJ but National Express don't display the fleet numbers very clearly on the front which is a pity as the current registration system doesn't accommodate  a matching number sequence. But this is nothing new and even though most BET companies tied in to their registrations the BTC 'Tilling Group' left it till the mid-Sixties to help us teenage spotters or never did it at all like Bristol Omnibus.
