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

Signs of the Time

I'm afraid many of our towns are starting to look a bit like the Amazon Jungle as the advertising and brand names reach out trying to grab more of the available light. Add to these the mass of often confusing road signs and other bits of street furniture that make pedestrians feel like second rate citizens compared to the much more important car. So the bus home is a bit of a Diamond like YT51 EAO in Bilston when it takes the more sensible shoppers home for a welcome cup of tea and to reflect on all the things we forgot to get because they couldn't remember the name.
