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

Wilson of Carnwath C245 RSF Van-Hool Alizee

We all have differing tastes as to what looks smart and I rather liked this Van-Hool bodied Volvo B10M of Wilson's. I don't know which one despite te Scottish reg. but I'm rather partical to silver based liveries and I've a feeling the other colour was raspberry red. I've just looked it up and it was one of the biggest coach firms in Scotland based at Carnwath, Strathclyde. More recently with over forty vehicles (1986)  In 1963 Robert Wilson had just three coaches, a Commer, a Bedford and an Albion.
