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

BVG Bussing to Britz
Many things have changed in Berlin since I started going there regularly in the early-Eighties

Favourite buses of mine were these high-revving audibly memorable Bussings which on acceleration
sounded rather like a rocket taking off and which were still being delivered up to 1974 before being replaced by the more familiar MAN also to be seen in this shot.. No.2412 from the
1972 delivery was bound for Britz not too far from Neukolin where the bus was bodied at the Wagon-Union
