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

LWS 40Y City of Gloucester Roe bodied Olympian

Despite the Christmas decorations I don't think it was the festive season yet but they obviously go up very early in  Gloucester. The NBC bought both but the Roe bodied Leyland Olympians were not so common as the more familiar ECW bodied buses but  new to Bristol Omnibus as seen here here and London Country had a lot of them. I thought these looked a bit more attractive in a quirky way when they were new with the extra brightwork but perhaps not so much once they had been allowed to get a bit scruffy.
