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

Nice First Bus in Salford City Colours

A lot of recent buses don't always look too comfortable painted in a version of traditional bus liveries especially the Enviro 400's, but like an old half-cab these Wright bodies have a similar slope at the front and sharp corners giving those ornate schemes a crisp angular look. They only one that springs to mind that I don't like in First's commendable recreation of the past is the one painted red and white  like a Mancunian, maybe boring old red and cream might have worked better.
