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

JFR 393M: Preston The Lancashire Rain Reigns Supreme

I tend to try to get my posts to match the day in question and this image of a secondhand Ribble Atlantean with East Lancs bodywork leaving Preston Bus Station just about gets it right as that was another mild but foul wet Saturday. The Route 111 to Leyland one normally associates with Fishwick's so I expect even then the bigger competition was trying to run them off the road.
