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

RM 450: There Will Always Be An England

Let's hope so for along with so-called Invisible Earnings like Banking and those multinationals who choose to keep their factory production here, the Royal Family and it's positive effect on the tourist industry is a great money spinner for the U.K. Even the trusty Routemaster is such a huge icon we can't quite get rid of them and despite the stickers RM 450 still looked very smart in London Coaches livery here at the end of the Eighties as it made stately progress along Whitehall.
