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

It's Orange: First Get's Tangoed

First Bus has retrenched in recent times ridding itself to pay of debt of not just it's more rural networks but some large working class towns too which should be profitable if run properly. It's still in the Potteries another good example but even here in it's diminished empire it has dogged professional competition from D&G which at times seems less like the small Independent. Two of their buses are seen in Newcastle.
