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

Yorkshire Traction Leopard XHE 234 at Barnsley

I always loved the 100 Midland Red LS!8 Leyland Leopards with early 36ft Willowbrook and Weymann bodywork, and I was enthused enough to take photos of similar buses with other operators. Indeed it's stange really as I didn't take that many of the Midland Red examples. In Yorkshire a number of BET operators ran the including Hebble with AEC Reliances, East Yorkshire, and Yorkshire Traction along with County. It looked like YTC No.301 had recently come out of the paintshop in this view from about 1970 taken with my old Voitlander.
