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

Happy Days Mercedes Mini to Gnosall

One doesn't really think of Happy Days of Woodseaves as a minibus operator but they did operate this Scottish registered Mercedes on service work and i'm sure it was useful. Obviously when purchased the red and white livery was deemed close enough to the norm to not need a repaint so it must have been a good buy. Of course like Staffordian Happy Days passed to Arriva till with little heart they tired of trying to do rural operations and Independent's once more do the quieter local country services.
