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

Crosville Olympian A144 SMA at Woodside Birkenhead

Unless one tries to avoid it most bus photographs are taken in the most dreary or boring locations and so somewhere like Woodside Bus Station and ferry terninal at Birkenhead was literally like a breath of fresh air. Not only was it busy itcould it could always provide us with an interesting array of buses plus great views across the Mersey to Liverpool and the Liver Building. By the Eighties the magnificent blue and cream corporation buses had been replaced with verona green PTE Atlanteans but Crosville didn't look too bad under the NBC as can be witnessed by this ECW bodied Leyland Olympian on the frequent services to Chester.
