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

Plymouth: They Parade Down the Royal Parade

This winter has been bitterly cold and at this moment I can think of nothing better than spending some time photographing the buses and girls on the Royal Parade in Plymouth. The women here and in Exeter seem to be especially lovely but I'm afraid when it comes to buses it's not what it used to be but under Go-Ahead Plymouth still has it's red 'municipal' buses but sadly the roar of the Atlantean is long gone.
