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

Midland Fox SYPTE Fleetline SHE560S

A pair of Daimler Fleetlines kill time between duties at Leicester. The Midland Fox livery was bright and cheerful in yellow and red which was popular at the time. I cannot help thinking this later 'Liverpool Inspired' later version of the classic rounded design was not an improvement as seen on this former South Yorkshire example. However I concede there was less expensive curved glass to replace and the angular lines and peaked bulkheads were fashionable at the time.
