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 Blue Russian Perhaps?
In the former East Berlin one would have expected to see a far greater variety of buses and coaches from across the Iron Curtain than there was. But with coaches at least they seemed to be mostly the same Ikarus from Hungary or Autosan models from nearby Poland. However there were strange beasts and unfamiliar number-plates like this one that behind the strange name and radiator grill blanket seemed to lurk the vague shape of an elderly Setra probably built under licence.
