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

Peterborough Levante: Once I was a know-All

I still know more than I should about buses in the Sixties but these days I can't even guess a lot of it any more. Unlike on this East Yorkshire coach at Peterborough working for National Express once not only did each operator have it's own colours we could guess where it was from by it's registration and even though Y is for Yorkshire it's hardly precise like Hulls KH, RH and AT. And it could be a Volvo, a Scania or a Hungarian Goolash for all I know. No sadly if I really need to know I have to look it up so forgive me if sometimes I just take the pictures and get it wrong.

Thanks Mick, in the early days I was overrun with visitors to this blog but much quieter I still keep it going for those who want to see my work and as a back-up, but it doesn't matter too much what I write so I just say it as it is the way I'm feeling.

Your mixture of old and new (I know what I prefer) and your Swiss, German, Portuguese, and Scandinavian photos, plus your knowledgeable captions makes this an almost daily look for me. Thanks for continuing.
