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

Manchester PD2 PND 440 at Alexandra Park Gates

Like many other places Manchester feels like a different place from as it was here in 1965 and views like this of Alexandra Road are just a memory. A Queens Road Leyland PD2 from the first batch of MCW Orion's waits to do the clocking machine before doing the last mile or so to Chorlton on the 88. Princess Road Garage which was near here also did this route and it's sister the 80 and normally used Daimlers in the 4100-4189 series which were all allocated there.
