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

Potsdam Tram 048

One thing you can't deny is that the world of Communism was pretty ugly if Potsdam was anything to go by. Indeed this is one of the more attractive of German cities but with horrible grey dirty looking Postwar architecture few trees or even people about, it was a pretty depressing scene. This view was taken soon after Reunification so soon the streets would be filled with cars and the buildings sport the neon signs of Capitalism.
