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

The Minibus Makeover

The introduction of the urban mini-bus was something of a quick fix as they were cheap to put on the road. Both drivers and enthusiasts hated them but looking back they did have their benefits for although they were cramped and noisy one came along every few minutes and dropped you outside your house. A friend who lived on Wildwood in Stafford remarked on it the other day citing that they only see two big buses down there a day now.
