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

From Poland a French looking Jelcz in Prague

Apart from having what looks a bit like a 1964 London registration number this bus in Prague had a British connection. It was built by a polish firm Jelcz which had been known as Zubr until 1968 and built buses using licence-built Wola-Leyland engines. At the end of the 1970's an agreement was made with Berliet where Skoda based passenger models would be replaced with the PR100 city bus  hence it's rather brutal french appearance. However it was powered by Berliet or the Wola-Leyland.
