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

Grey Green Volvo B10M Duple E891 KYW

Cowie's Grey Green Coaches was one of a number of traditionally loyal Leyland customers who cherished the Leopard but quickly became disenchanted with it's replacement the Tiger and turned to the ever populat Volvo B10M. It's a shame after it's buy-out by Plaxton, Duple ceased building bodies as this it's final offering was most attraactive. Always one of the best places to see coaches in London was along the Thames Embankment.
