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

Change is always just around the corner: BU04 BLV No.4591

In this case that literally happened for I took this photo last Saturday and exactly a week later I expected to see the top of the double-decker appear above the trees like the neck of a giraffe but no it was a Scania single-decker today. I though it might be a one off replacement bus, but no all the others on the 25 were the same. I'm not sure they are so well suited as between Bilston and Wolverhampton buses have to negotiate a between the war's housing estate with parked cars and tight turns and a couple of times the rear wheels mounted the kerb. Also how can I take photos from the top deck!
