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

Quenching that thirst on Berlin's Kurfirstendam
Thirsty or not, one of the pleasures of visiting great cities is drinking whether it be enjoying a night on the town or just sitting watching the world go by. No doubt like millions of visitors before them these girls enjoy the magic of Berlin's most fashionable street. Of course double-deckers still amble along here too but for as long as I can remember the 9 Route taking them back to Tegel Airport or as it is today 109 has always been worked by single-deckers even if the extra axle is a more recent innovation.
