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

Bring Me Sunshine: First Manchester MX05 CFK

After Barbi one might have thought First Bus might have tried to get away from the drab greys and this Wright bodied Volvo seen in Manchester three years ago does nothing to brighten the drabness of the city street in winter.

Dreadful, drab, and dingy livery.

Well at least they don't paint them all like that any more and some of the liveries are refreshingly cheerful but not the buses I tend to see.
