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

Spot the real Cat amongst the Leylands

Plenty of cats to be found at the Ellen Smith premises near Rochdale but sadly unlike the real feline the playful days for the old Leyland Tiger Cubs had long gone. The one at the centre has a Duple body whilst the other one and the partly grimpsed old Leopard were by Harrington of Hove. This operator was a staunch Leyland fan but a few AEC's found their way into the red and white painted fleet as well from time to time.
