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

"Mavis this must be the new Doctor Who Tardis I think."

The so-called Borismaster is so strikingly different, if it actually matters one has trouble trying to decide whether it's ugly or not as most people just seem to like it's quirkiness. Stagecoach have painted this one silver and amongst all the polished vehicles and aircraft at Duxford for Showbus it looked far less like a bus than anything else there and in this view at least slightly surreal as it looks modern yet it's shape harks back to the over-streamlined Thirties.
