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

Bassetts Allsorts KCW75N

I suppose as we get older that thing that made a trip to town on a Saturday Afternoon dwindles, but even now it is still a little bit special with a different lot of people we might see or someone nice we haven't bumped into for ages. As for buses though today every day is very much the same but that wouldn't be so bad if we were still treated to a smart Bassetts Duple bodied Leopard like KCW75N. Life moves on and apart from liveries I think the full-size offerings from the big groups by far outshine those excuse for a PSV, the minibus. Coming up behind is a Happy Days Plaxton Supreme bodied Ford RUJ 341R which came from Allerton of Bywater whilst the Bassetts vehicle was one of many from it's favorite source W. Robinson of Great Harwood.
