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

Autobus Martigny VS 1111: Mercdes 0305
Martigny is situated in the most appropriately named Swiss Canton of Valais where the steep mountainsides towering above the Rhone Valley literally overshadow this small town where a sharp bend in the course of the fast flowing river marks which peaks are in nearby Italy or France. Although of course it has a railway station it is not a busy bus terminus but in 1989 I saw this old dusty looking Mercedes O305 with the nice Registration No.VS 1111.
