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

Plymouth Citybus Dennis Dart at The Hoe X201 CDV

Plymouth city centre had to be completely rebuilt after the war so the best place nearby if you want to get away from all that Fifties Concrete is down at The Hoe. Sadly even this area has been tidied up losing a lot of it's former rugged charm. At one time too Atlanteans used to ply their way down these narrow streets on the open-top service but when I was last there a rather mundane Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Dart was typical.
