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

Brown's In Horsham in 1969

The South.East corner of Britain seemed to unable to boast that many well known independents compared with other parts of the country. But of course there were a few quite well known ones even if not household names even amongst enthusiasts. One of the more interesting was Brown Motor Services which could be seen in Horsham like this Willowbrook bodied Albion Nimbus. Based at Forest Green in Surrey they only had three buses, one being a rare Rare Leyland Comet. Despite the name the livery was maroon and cream. Horsham was one of those interesting towns right on the border where various major bus companies met, and as well as Southdown the principal operator with a decent sized garage here, one could also see green London Transport buses and Aldershot and District.
