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

Devon General Massey Bodied Leopard at Paul Street

I don't think this was planned but things were very different in 1980 when Devon General buses at Exeter Paul Street Bus Station just parked up and passengers walked across the bus lane. Of course accidents were rare as people used their common-sense. The Corporation like many County Towns seemed to like Massey bodywork and this was one of six bought to replace elderly Daimlers on it's share of country services which it worked alongside Devon General.
