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

Tegal bound BVG 1518 turns on to the bustling Ku-Dam

Standing probably not able to see much from the crowded bus full of sweaty travellers but for some this will be their last views of the bustling Kurfirstendam as the No.9 'Airport to City' branded bus makes steady progress to Tegal Airport. At the time when the normal livery was a typical monotonous german unrelieved creamy colour these MAN airport buses 1513-1527 of  1981 looked exceptionally smart and eye-catching.
