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

London Pride Pound a Pint or a Dennis Dominator

Well a pint of London Pride beer was about one-pound then if you knew where to go but I'm sure it's a lot more today. Many areas of bus operation have declined but an area of impressive growth since the early Seventies has been the open-top double-deck sightseeing tour. Sadly maybe because of the decline of the seaside resort we are less often able to relive childhood memories of cheap rides and ice-cream. However the often pricey city tour bus is only really for tourists but for the enthusiast it adds a bit of much welcomed variety bringing unlikely buses like this former Cleveland NC bodied Dominator to Trafalgar Square in the Nineties.
