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

An FLF CHY 419C :Looking for Bristols in Bristol

As their numbers seemed to dwindle almost daily I made a big effort to try to get pictures of the last provincial half-cabs before they were gone; indeed this was one of the reasons I started taking bus photos again following a ten year pause. These forays had to be done once I had done my deliveries and fortunately every so often I used to deliver in one drop electricity meters to SWEB at Lockleaze in a Bristol residential area. To have a hobby to get one out and about walking was much better than just tanking it up and down the motorway like an idiot..... I know what you are thinking, but I was self-employed.
