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 Auto Bova B725 MBC in Blackpool

Even in the Nineties during the season Blackpool could be a mecca for interesting coaches like this Bova Futura in United's red and white livery and bearing a Leicester number making it slightly more worthy of attention. But re-registrations were in abundance too adding to the problem and we can see one, a Leopard probably as AEC's were getting scarce which at first glance looks like has an Isle of Man number B423 MAN. I'm glad I stopped spotting when I was a youngster when change moved very gradually and the orderly bus world was well documented.
