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

Not surprisingly Copenhagen attracts a wealth of visiting coaches from all over Europe, the most common of course being from Germany and fellow Scandinavian countries. I imagine there are a few from the nearby former Communist Block too which is not too far away but I guess if it's expensive for us it's a tad bit even more expensive for the shopping. Amongst the coaches I saw when I was there in the Eighties was this rather impressive and smart Panoramic LAG bodied Volvo Turbo coach from Belgium working for a holiday company and pictured outside the railway station.
