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

It's Bacon Lettuce and Tomato 189

......Anyway it's a lot easier to call it by that than scribble down the name of this firm BBS.
I don't think the German bus fans show the same levels of loony enthusiasm as can sometimes be found in Britain on Portugal, but I think this one with a B-LT registration might get the Berlin fraternity excited. The main BVG bus fleet was highly standardised but a little more variety could occasionally be found in it's sightseeing buses where in 1982 this 'white lady' really stood out from the more usual rather brash and slightly monstrous double-decker Neoplans and no doubt will stir quite a few memories.
