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

Here's the deal: Any colour you want as long as it's a horrid Trabant!

One good thing I suppose is car theft and joy riding would have been unheard of in East Germany before Reunification and that must have been reassuring as families saved up for years to get their environment damaging two-stroke dream car. No doubt many were a lot more content under Communism and will miss being younger in 'the bad old days'. Lucky tourists wanting to see how the other half lived came before the Wall came down like this party from France on their Bova Futura 'Super Coach' of Levet. The last two numbers tells you where it was from but I've forgotten them all apart from Paris being 75.
