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

Leicester Buses of the Sixties and Seventies

A comparison of buses from the Sixties and Seventies here at Leicester, a 1967 MCW bodied Leyland PD3 and an East-Lancs bodied Dennis Dominator of 1979. Not that it had any complaints about it's faithful old  half-cab Titans but dissatisfaction with the Leyland regime at Leicester led to birth of the Dominator which helped the once familiar Dennis company to re-establish itself as a key player.
