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

Early Sixties Bedford Holds on in Wrexham.

Cornwall was always a good place to find normally time-expired buses and coaches because the mild climate meant there was never any salt on the roads in Winter. Another good region to find them was on the sparcely populated  English- Welsh border. This time it was not so much the weather to thank but not so good for the operators concerned was the fact that they probably couldn't afford anything else where operation was more about margins than profit and old Bedfords were easy to look after and cheap to run. Good places to hunt were in the Forset of Dean and towns like Shrewsbury and here at Wrexham.
