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

Giessen: Advertising, not a pretty sight

All-over advertisements on buses are a common sight on the Continent where enthusiasts tend to be more interested in trams, preserved buses or the history of the routes and systems. But if you had grown up in a world where production-line buses had been the norm long before the Leyland National was born maybe you wouldn't have been quite so crazy about the buses like this standard Mercedes OM 407 belonging to SWG of Giessen
