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

BVG 5124: Marzahn catching up with the West

It's amazing to think how quickly East Berlin and it's population became to look the same as those in the West after the fall of the DDR. Even the rows of soulless flats no longer look quite so stark against streets filling up with cars. A reminder of the old days though is a former BVG Ikarus still in orange and cream passes through Marzahn on it's way to Mahlsdorf.
