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

KAL 684 West Bridgeford U.D.C

I think if one had to choose the most interesting and varied city for buses in the Sixties Nottingham would be near the top of the list. If one had to find an area where it didn't excel it was perhaps in that it was only served by two Municipals. Having said that they were both interesting for whereas the city itself was very innovative the small brown and cream fleet at West Bridgeford was for many years very conservative and when this Park-Royal bodied AEC Regent 111 was seen here in about 1968 was already twenty years old and had a 'rathergrand' pre-war feel about it.
