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

NAW Swiss Post Bus in Lugano

It can be wet in summer but Lugano is a good place to be in the winter as those snow covered Alps mark the border between cold Northern Europe and the milder Mediterranean region. After it absorbed the Swiss FBW and Saurer concerns Mercedes continued to build buses at Arbon to a local specification like this one for the PTT with Mercedes parts. As you can see they have the Co-op there too but the place to buy your bargain chocolate and eat cheaply are the Migros department stores.
