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

Trying to Dodge the Dodges in Plymouth

It was very difficult to Dodge the Dodges for minibuses seemed to have taken-over every town but today it seems hard to imagine how chaotic it was during the minibus boom or just in some cases almost madness. Perhaps it was a cheap quick fix with rubbish wages and low paid young drivers but there were successes too as the small bread vans grew bigger till midi-buses were replaced by full-sized vehicles again but at the same time the rapid frequency of buses was cut back and the old status quo returned to previous frequencies.
