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

A DMS in Chesterfield MLK 432L

There were days when we went somewhere and because it was somewhere different we took photos even though we shouldn't because the light was poor. Then when we developed them the negatives were a bit flat reducing the contrast even more so it was always pleasing then when years later after abit of tweaking we find one we really like which made it all worthwhile. I think I can certainly say that about this view of a former London DMS at work at Chesterfield in the Eighties. At one time most proud Municipal Boroughs wouldn't normally even consider buying anything secondhand but purses got stretched and good housekeeping became just as important and Chesterfield bought secondhand Leyland Panthers from Merseyside too.
