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

Suits You Sir!

We marvel at the atmosphere and attention to detail in some of Jowitts best street studies, but like this recent view of Wolverhampton they were pretty mundane at the time. But I think Robert would like this as the tailoring advert for Slaters on the back of the National Express WM Volvo 2115 as here at least it seems to speak to the casually dressed pedestrians passing in the street which of course is what it is supposed to do.
