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

Brighton Open-Top Leyland PD3 LUF 133F

Very much a feature of Brighton was it's open top buses, this MCW bodied PD3 was delivered new as as believe it or not an OPO bus. But after it was converted I imagine with most people getting on and off at the same points these duties were less demanding with regard to driver neck-ache on sea-front duties. Still I'm sure they must have been popular with the public at least and No.33 LUF 133F might have been pictured in 1979 but all four were still with Brighton in 1985.
