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

Alder Valley Leyland National No.164 TBL164M in Newbury

The passage of time can not only put a kind of nostalgic gloss on what were quite mundane photos but it can even turn them into gems. I'm not sure this study of an Alder Valley Leyland National going through Newbury is quite that wonderful but it is quite fascinating in it's own way. Look how prosperous the people and how tidy and clean the street is.
