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

Postsdam Bahnhof Forecourt as it was

Potsdam is quite a large town but only boasted a fairly small very traditional and pleasant joint S-Bahn and main line railway station which hadn't been altered much since it was built. Once outside the visitor was afforded lovely views beyond lines of trees towards Potsdam itself. But following German  Reunification the station was completely rebuilt to incorporate a shopping centre and all the old DDR cobbled street charm was gone as was this scene thanks to good old western Capitalism with it's up and down escalators and characterless fast food outlets..
