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

What bad winter weather?

Yesterday no buses went out on the streets of London because of the icey conditions. As you can see a bit of snow doesn't bother them in Switzerland, indeed if they don't get plenty of the white stuff it spells disaster for the economy. Alpine winters tend to be cold and crisp but in North East Switzerland they get more of the grey miserable English days but a lot colder. Still an enjoyable ride on one of St Gallen's Saurer RH buses might warm the spirit such as this 1983 Ramseier & Jenzer example.
