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

Rebodied Royal TigerWorldmaster 488 in Porto

Older bus types used to be a lot more rugged than today but as for bodywork that was a different matter as in the UK corrosion was a serious headache whilst in places lie Portugal with indifferent road surfaces and cobbled streets bodies shook to bits and buses like this Leyland Worldmaster were rebodied. As for the conductors on the Porto trolleybuses they had a lot more to do than just take fares!
