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

Bern and the musings of Robert Jowitt

In Bern they used to keep the older buses for peak hour running only but on this occasion at the end of February it was still light enough before evening set in to get a photo of a pair of venerable old FBWs. Indeed this was the early 90's and well-laden No.118 dated from 1959. Even though there is nothing blatant this image has a strong Robert Jowitt feel and in one of his writings even though it might have been said in a witty self-effacing way he commented that he had stayed at the imposing Hotel Schweizerhof
