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

Optare Metro Shuttle in Manchester

The centre of Manchester not only looks but feels completely different to how it was in the Sixties but still just as scruffy little pockets of it still remain such as the area around Oldham Street and Withy Grove where a modern Optare works the Metro Shuttle but I well remember a similar inner circle service which used smart new Leyland Tiger Cubs in blue airport livery before they were replaced by the Park Royal Panther Cubs.
