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

A Berlin House Christening Party

I'm afraid when I stay with my brother in Berlin he tells me nothing worthwhile about it's people unless by accident, usually it's just about unemployment and for instance rubbish about being able to tell the former East Germans as they have bad skin from eating nothing but pork. So it was only later that I learnt that one of their many customs is to visit your new home in build and offer a toast and a few words for good luck. So here were two smart MAN's of the tiny BVG luxury coach fleet on a private hire to one such house christening ceremony in the suburbs. There were just three of these SR240's and seen here are the two 1982 examples 1351 and 1355.
