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

Travel in Berlin

Berlin has a very good day and night transport system by British standards but not only do people take the more healthy option and use their bicycles a lot more the city is almost as flat as Holland. It's certainly better than using a car and should you leave it unattended at the side of the fashionable Kurfirstendam at least you won't come back to find a parking ticket. I expect with the arrival of more three-axle MAN Lion double-deckers all of this earlier type of MAN from the Eighties will be gone by now.
