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

M.A.N WAGON-UNION Prototype 2514

This generation of Berlin double-deckers dating from the mid-Seventies till the early Eighties were not exactly pretty but the production buses were certainly an improvement on the two prototypes 2514-2515 built in 1973. As is often the case once they became an endangered species I grew quite fond of them as they sounded rather nice reminding me of our charismatic 'whistling' MCW Metrobus.
