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

Mercedes-Benz 0303

Coaches visit Berlin from right across Germany and beyond. When the Berlin Wall was still an attraction in 1982 a Mercedes-Benz 0303 coach of Berbig from Hamburg visits the city. With the bulky 0303 design came slabs of colour and bold graphics to disguise it's lack of elegance but maybe the tasteless Seventies was all about 'making a show'.
