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

DSV 61&V Lothian Transport Atlantean in Edinburgh

With greater wear of components  hilly terrain must be quite a problem for many bus operators but as a photographer it can lead to more interesting shots. A visit to Edinburgh could give one lovely feelings of nostalgia as Lothian buses continued the fine tradition once the norm amongst a number of Municipals of taking a pride in the bus operation in this instance it took over from Edinburgh Corportation. Sadly as elsewhere the Scottish capital city has to keep up with times and these attractive Alexander bodied Atlanteans are now just a memory as were the other Leylands which once dominated this fine fleet of which I note there were 700 buses in 1964.
