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

National Welsh Bristol VR BUH 238V at Bridgend

Bridgend had been the Western Welsh biggest garage but by the time I took this in the Eighties there were not so many buses to be seen. National Welsh had a lot of Nationals and Leopards at the expense of the double-decker but there were still some around like this Bristol VR bound for Porthcawl.

And a low-height 13' 5" model just to add to the variety.

National Welsh received 30 of this type in 1980, numbered LR8001-10 and LR8041-60, with the 'L' designating the lower body style as opposed to 'H' designating the standard 13' 8" model.
