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 3369 on the 94E to Heerstr

They might not have been the most handsome of buses but time has given the once ever present Berlin Man double-deckers like this old friend status and they sounded great which compensated for their boxy look, they hummed along a bit like our Metrobus another favourite. A late example from the early Eighties 3369 was heading out towards Spandau and I much prefer the ride from this side of Zoo where there are wide roads lined by elegant important looking buildings rather than the concrete and neon of Post War Berlin.
