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

You can't kill off a name like Crosville

If I were to go back in time I would never for a moment believe things that have happened around me. Who would have thought that someone with a love for period Crosville buses would set up a working and heritage company with that name in Weston super Mare of all places. Good luck to them and I can't wait to see Midland Red AD2's, S8, and S13's trundling around Skipton, or ancient Blackpool trams in Bilston. On a more serious note Heritage and tourism is one of the things that keeps parts of the UK alive today now that we hardly make anything any more and yes I'm glad I'm old enough to remember these Bristol L's etc...
