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

Bedford OB BEP 882 at Wythall

To many mention old buses and they will immediately recall the very economical petrol-engined Bedford OB and with an elegant Duple Vista body like the second bus along, it was the classic early post war coach. As well as small country operators they also appeared in small numbers particularly in the big nationalised BTC companies fleets as they were ideal for local half-day tours particularly at the seaside.
