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

The Gaumont: The Final Curtain

Call me old-fashioned and a cynic but I hate to see old buildings being demolished and especially when they have history and held wonderful memories for local people, perhaps Ted and Doreen had their first fumbling kiss or snogged in the dark smokey back row seats of the once focal but now flattened to rubble Gaumont Cinema in Wolverhampton. The Optare Solo is doing the circular shoppers service.
