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

JVV 267G: Just like the back end of a bus

No not exactly a compliment but going back to the Thirties and War Years the angular profile was hardly inspiring on double-deckers. However for those with a trained eye many later more rounded designs may not be beautiful but they have a pleasing subtle functional elegance like the rugged Roe body on this former Northampton Daimler CVG6 whose significance is that it was the last example built JVV 267G No.267 in 1968 and seen here at Lincoln.
