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

Yorkshire Woollen District LHD 313K

After Britain's largest Independent West Riding of Wakefield sold out to the NBC it more or less merged with smaller BET Yorkshire Woollen District from the next town Dewsbury but they kept separate identities. So a YWD ECW bodied Daimler Fleetline was in Leeds bound for Huddersfield in the sunshine.

When did ownership change? I seem to remember West Riding buses in the late 70's early 80's, or maybe I'm mistaken....? I was a very long time ago....
