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

Remember South Yorks of Pontefract KWY 198V

South Yorkshire of Pontefract was an Independent with a modern bought new fleet which had a bit of character and commanded a lot of respect. Sadly the blues and white in the livery didn't wear terribly well and the buses could have looked a bit smarter which was a pity. Sadly they are another one that succumbed to the Arriva empire so I prefer them the way they were. These low-height Northern Counties bodies on the Daimler Fleetline were simple and attractive though like No.98 seen in Leeds on the main route to Doncaster.
