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

I'm OK Travel Volvo B10M and a Futura 7069 and 7063

Although I don't recognise the background as such I imagine this one was taken in Blackpool on a sunny day. By this time as can be witnessed by the high 7*** coach series fleet numbers the North East's best known Independent had been taken over by Northern General who by this time called itself Go-Northern if I am correct. Both these coach designs enjoyed success and a long production run, the DAF based Bova Futura and the one that gave the Leyland Leopard a run for it's money the winning combination of a sturdy looking Van Hool body on the Volvo B10M.
