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

AAP 650T: Brighton Sophistication

Seaside Resorts have a reputation for being rather tacky, not all of them of course and  Brighton can pride itself on being cosmopolitan too with it's affluent 'London-on-Sea' image drawing in a more sophisticated resident. This Brighton and Hove Bristol VR with it's bright fairly simple livery and neat traditional lettering was a credit to the town. Imaginatively updated I still think these old liveries preserving the spirit of the past employing proper primary colours are still the best and like other well presented things most pleasing to the eye
