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

Chewing The Fat at Bridgewater

A couple of First Southern National employees pass the time of day at the Bridgewater depot. By this time the garage was due for demolition to be replaced by yet another supermarket a Tesco I expect. But this area had already changed beyond recognition since I was a kid for I remember approaching it from town beside the canal with a long row of terraced houses either side. Some of the liveries they inherited were nice so it was a pity that everything turned to Barbi including Bristol VR's like FDV 780V which still bore it's old NBC Western National number.
