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

New Olympians mark the end of tradition at Chester

I certainly miss the chocolate brown Chester  buses which suited the city so well along with the Tilling Green of Crosville. The Coropration favoured Daimler Fleetlines for many years and then bought Dennis Dominators before as usual with Northern Counties bodies a few Leyland Olympians. Following Deregulation survival became harder and purchases were often geared to the quick-fit of the second-hand market so instead of continuity variety became the order of the day, interesting but a bit depressing at te same time..
