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

Most of the older Swiss Post Garages were like this consisting of a row of garage units with a workshop-wash and accomodation above. Even those green frosted glass in the door panels were normal, but at some garages if one couldn't see anything through a cracked pane or two they sometimes like at Scoul kindly painted the bus it belonged to on the wall. As you would expect there are no oil leaks on the ground or rubbish here just white snow. They had run Mercedes-Benz buses here since the mid-Seventies but immaculate but time-expired Saurer RH P25829 had found it's way here from Bullach as the garage spare.
