There's nothing more British — or Londony — than a queue. Extra points if you're supping tea from a flask and discussing the weather while you do so. It's not just humans either; we've seen pictures of taxis, buses, ducks and even prams queuing. Here are some of the best.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their images via the Londonist Flickr pool: Andrew Smith, Annie, DAVE, Dave McGowan, James Offer, Maki Aoyama, Michael Goldrei, psyxjaw, q..., Wendy Dobing, World of Tim (and again),
