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

Halton Leopard KTB 748F

Widnes Corporation or as it had now become had been one of those very conservative operators which continued to buy the same buses and in this case traditional half-cab East-Lancs bodied Leyland PD3's with an eccentric just one opening vent at the front on the top deck. Maybe it was a change of general manager but fleet replacement policy turned to the single-decher instead. Of course it might just have been simply the desire to convert the system to OPO but nevertheless even though they looked a lot more modern the first of these buses were still  were still East-Lancs bodied Leylands
