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

Stratford Blue Called this one Rachel

After re-privatisation of the NBC a number of old much loved names reappeared a few in a close proximity to the old livery but more in updated livery like this smart Leyland Leopard of Stratford Blue on the Oxford service in the Nineties. The NBC was rather a cold flat characterless regime so it was nice to see a bit of character return to the buses with the naming of this by then quite old lady.
