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

Niddries of Middlewich

Gone now bought out by Bakers, Niddries of Middlewich is a firm I remember from my schooldays as I spent two terms at Great Budworth near Northwich at place called Belmont Hall and they were hired to take us to the New Cathedral in Liverpool for an evening schools concert. We had a Leyland 0400 powered Plaxton bodied Bedford VAL and I got myself banned from the front seat because talking I caused the driver to get lost in Warrington. As you might expect it was a good enough reason to find a new school!
