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

Narrow Residential Road Tight Roundabouts in leafy Wolverhampton

Even close to Wolverhampton where the Victorian industrial sprawl seems to just follow the main routes to the next former industrial centre there were little pockets of countryside. But later even these green lungs fell foul to the property speculators and this up-market green and leafy residential estate with it's showy Mercs and 4x4's is a fine example. Built between the wars when few families even possessed a car the planners could not take into consideration large buses like this Enviro on the 27 as well. I'm glad I took my camera with me that day for by the next Saturday last week the 25 had become single-decked too and a couple of times the driver mounted the curb which just didn't happen at all previously.
