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

Wood of Mirfield KTD 551C at Wakefield

Canny Independents have always managed to take advantage of buying newish time-expired demonstrators not only being able to modernise their often elderly fleets but whether they like it or not putting them on the enthusiast trail. I remember seeing this Park Royal bodied Atlantean when it was on trial with Brighton Corporation in January 1967 where it's mostly white Sheffield inspired livery made up stand against the familiar town's local reds and greens.
