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

Old Bus Stops in Giessen: MAN bus SWG 143

When these old views taken on the Continent are slightly blurred it seems to add to their mystique for until quite recently it at least seemed a very different world to that in the UK. But it was and still is for the beauty is in the detail and oh how dated those stern looking bus stop signs appear now. Today of course it might flash up in digital letters 'Eat Happy at McDonalds' and give the exact arrival time of the next bus but if I'm not in a rush I would much rather study a printed timetable board and look at my watch, or indeed ask that nice looking  girl standing next to me when the bus is due and see if she smiles.
