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

Strange Objects of Desire BG 9225 & AHF 850

Some bus rallies have a much more local flavour than others and a good example of that is this museum tram and bus running day at Birkenhead which not only features iconic Wirral buses but much of the old dockland scenery still has enough bones to take us back too to the Sixties. The pre-Orion Metro-Cammell body on the Wallesey bus was a very different and much more interesting beast. Massey bodies on the other hand for me were always lovely even the more squared later ones, but Birkenhead BG 9225 might just as well be better described as historic exotic rather than simply elegant..
