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

Northern Counties Bodied Leopard at Chester

During the Seventies single-deck variety was a rarity because the market was geared towards the ubiquitous  Leyland National and bus grant service coaches. Most of the few other saloons went to the remaining municipals and bodywork included the Duple Dominent but both both East-Lancs and Northern Counties managed to pick up some business. With rather square NC bodywork was this short Leyland Leopard with Chester. City Transport and looking smart in the updated 'more cream'  traditional brown based livery.
