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

Berlin: The magic of old Bussings

Thankfully as in British cities Berlin has kept it's double-deckers for the busiest routes. But of course as here apart from being able to ride upstairs the modern buses offer little excitement for the enthusiast. Before it was taken over by MAN in the Seventies the Berlin bus was a Bussing like this. They didn't look much but when it comes to sounds these tuneful buses had all the little friendly notes and quirks we associate with say the Routemaster quickly making them a favourite and adding to that feeling of being abroad.
