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

United Counties VNH 160W at St Margaret's Street Bus Station

Today the public and the coaches they board are much more segregated in our little paradise of health and safety concerns. But a few years ago the arrival of an express coach was full of interest with people coming and going just wandering and standing where they wish and not even getting run down. For me this one taken at the old Leicester St Margaret's Bus Station caught the arrival of a United Counties Duple bodied Leopard on it's long journey to Portsmouth and is a bit of a classic. My favorite bus photographer was Tom Moore and he more than anyone else inspired me to do these little story scenes around my shots when I can.
