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

Hyton & Dawson Lex Maxeta bodied Bedford YMO

Maidstone Corporation was one of those glorious conservative Municipals who ran a smart fleet of sturdy Massey bodied Leylands. But I imagine they must have had anew general manager who preferred  the 'cheap and cheerful' approach and out went all the proper buses and the town was invaded with Bedfords which like Ford's weren't really suited to intensive workings. Anyway many of the Bedfords soon found new homes including perhaps the most interesting this rare Bedford YMO/S with Lex Maxeta bodywork which was seen in Leicester with local Independent Hylton & Dawson.
