From Victorian antiquities to modern monstrosities, the array of lamp posts and street lights on display in London is extensive, in terms of style, age and, er, uprightness.

Many thanks to the photographers for allowing us to use their images via Flickr: aaroscape, Blake Pritchard,  Charlie M, Fabio Lugaro,  Gary Etchell, Ian Muttoo, Lee Jackson, Mike Murphy, Owlwithoutfeathers, Paola Y and Peter Denton.
