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

A Long Wait at the bus stop in Cobridge

I'm sure in the old PMT days one would only have to wait a few minutes for a bus from Cobridge to Hanley but I must have waited about half-an-hour for this former Midland Red West Enviro 300 to come along and it wasn't even a Sunday. Many of our streets look untidy these days with signs and satelite dishes covering buildings not to mention cars parked on the pavement.

Feels to me like First Potteries have a master plan to reduce services until they are so infrequent anyone who has an alternative stops using them and then to pull out like they did in Plymouth and East Lothian.

They did the same in Northampton too.
