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

garage D'orsay Chesieres

Here is an interesting view from Switzerland in the mid-Sixties of the sole vehicle of  the local Villars Tours. As well as the nicely curved MAN coach we are treated to the slow pace of village life where rumour had that it they regularly dug up the road to keep the Italian workforce employed. Interesting garage signs too and I would have thought GM would have sold it's cars here as a German Opel rather than far away Luton based Vauxhall from the UK. This garage was right next door to where I was at school as I was fortunate enough to go to Aiglon College.
