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

Birkenhead & Liverpool: Our Day Out With Dad and Mum

I have a good memory but who would know as a child what they would remember and what they would forget, what leaves a lasting impression and what is just blandness or just unpleasant. I suppose we still remember the everyday like how the dining room or how big our bedroom was but conveniently forget it in a way as it is not relevant but if I could go back and revisit my childhood it would be for good days out like this to Birkenhead with great views across the Mersey to Liverpool. Buses always fascinated me as a child and I expect that was partly because my older brother liked them because they were where it was like a Crosville. Of course Crosville and Birkenhead Coropration are long gone but everything has it's time and even this Arriva Wright bodied VDL No.2905 CX58 EWU at Woodside will be a vague memory in years to come of hopefully a wonderful childhood to these children taking an old bus ride.
