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

Southend Transport Leyland Tiger at Trafalgar Square on S1

Still in West Yorkshire PTE Gold Rider livery was this Plaxton bodied Leyland Tiger at Trafalgar Square. Traditionally London was a pretty staid place bus wise with London Transport having a twenty-five mile monopoly of services. Today on the surface at it's heart it might look very much the way it used to with nothing but red buses but competition is still rife. The Nineties though was interesting it even brought the nearby former municipal operators of Maidstone, Reading and as here Southend into town.
