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

A Greenslades of Devon ' Red Herring' at Alton

At first glance one might think this Harrington bodied AEC Reliance of 1964 with the Exeter BET firm of Greenslades was the slightly more modern looking Grenadier but still being built alongside them was the earlier Cavalier and Greenslades opted for Grenadier fronts on them. One could make these requests to a smaller builder as to them perhaps and order for fivve bodies was highly valued whereas the larger concers much just 'show you the door'.
