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

Longroyd Bridge: Say Cheese!

It could be bemusement but some people just don't like being photographed for various reasons. But here of course I was just taking a photo of one of the former Huddersfield Roe bodied Daimler Fleetlines close to the depot at Longroyd Bridge. I quite like this photo of 1980 though as it catches the character of this area where rather better-off bungalows and houses cling to the hillside overlooking views of mills and countryside whilst scruffy dwellings and shops huddle for room next to the road so close the windows always need cleaning as the heavy traffic rumbles passed.
