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

As enthusiasts we welcome it when operators put a code on their buses so we can identify it's garage. M&D had letters on a disc at the back, Midland Red had it on the edge of the destination blinds, and Ribble used the spare licence holder which could be checked when the bus was standing. However in Prague they really went to town and wrote the garage name on the front of the bus as a form of local branding I expect.
