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

BNE 736N: R Bullock of Cheadle

From a frontal view alone one would never be able to guess whether this former Greater Manchester Northern Counties bodied bus negotiating the building work at Piccadilly for the tramway was one of it's vast fleet of Atlanteans or a slightly less numerous Fleetline. As it turned out like most of the Manchester Independents who had a go following Deregulation Bullocks went for the Daimler Fleetline so I knew already. But they were in good company as Mayne and Walls liked them too. Following former 7420 was GM 7916 an Atlantean with a Park Royal body and easy to recognise against the crisp angled NC bodied buses as it had a more rounded front dome
