Britain Queen's Jubilee

  Preparations are made for a Jubilee street party on Canal Street in Manchester, England Friday June 1 2012. The patriotic bunting is ready, the golden carriage on standby, the boats freshly painted, the shops filled with royals souvenirs. The normal ebb and flow of British life gives way in the next four days to a series of street parties, flotillas, outdoor concerts and finally the appearance of an elderly great-grandmother on her balcony to wave to her subjects. The pageantry is very grand and very British.(AP Photo/Martin Rickett/PA Wire)
