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

Early Bova of Pool Reizen

We are so used to seeing the sleek frontage of the long running Bova Futura the earlier generation now look even more boxy. However it is amazing how good they looked in the right livery like this Dutch example with bold red stripes of Pool Reizen seen in Croatia.

I used to drive a Europa (body #2172) for Tates of Markyate. A superb vehicle to drive and carry pax.

Yes the DAF chassis in Britain was one of the best kept secrets at that time and I used to like the Europa too with it's crisp styling as well

Only problem with the DAF chassis was the front brakes. If they were adjusted as per manual, they squealed. I did my own adjustment and never had a problem. My one was the 'high floor' model with the shallow windows.
