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

Zurich 1990: A cold grey January Afternoon

Somehow unlike Bern the city of Zurich always seems to hold a bit of cheer whatever the weather, maybe it's the sense of space and the bright blue white and silver buses and trams. In January 1990 these Hess bodied BBC-SAAS equiped FBW trolleybuses like No.79 were still very much a part of that vibrant scene, some surviving at least another ten-years into the new Millennium. Sadly the poor light has flawed the exposure of an otherwise superb photo, but now I've scanned it you might as well enjoy it too.
