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

Winterhalder im Zurich
Wandering around one doesn't seem to come across so many coaches in Switzerland these days unless they are ferrying tourists to and from the ski resorts. So I tend to photograph anything that looks rather smart like this very stylish Italian Pandene boded Mercedes-Benz 0303 coach in it's home town of Zurich paused outside the Bahnhof with suitably affluent clientele waiting to board some time in the Nineties.
