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

It's Christmas Folks
I love playing around with my old images that didn't turn out quite right, anyway it's certainly more satisfactory than having to throw them all away. This view was taken through the windows of my friend's office at Die Schweizerische Post, with old boggie-tram 716 halted outside in Bern's Viktoriastrasse. Sadly it was dusk and the poor lighting made the detail thin but you can certainly see how big these units were were pulling a trailer. I will still be blogging over Christmas so keep looking but I thought I would thank those of you who have left messages and enjoyed my photos of the last year for your tenacity.
