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

Ribble: The New Fangled Come & Go but this old Half-Cab wants to Soldier On

Overrun with Leyland Nationals things had changed a great deal and no doubt many of the Ribble garage staff would have said not for the better since the last front-engined single deckers arrived in 1949. Indeed at least one of them had survived as a tow bus at Preston here in 1979 and was still able to show off the front section of it's attractive Burlingham bodywork.
