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

Bus Wars in Glasgow

The bus war that followed Deregulation was intense in Glasgow with rival operators almost trying to beat their own buses to the bus stop lol. A contrast in styles here to the west of the city as a colourful Kelvin Routemaster presents are somewhat cheap and cheerful image with the novelty of London Routemasters whilst Strathclyde offering cheap fares too still tries to show it is here to stay with it's familiar orange Atlanteans.
