‘The Queue’

by Tim Hunkin

I was stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this wooden man in the window of Monmouth Coffee Company. I instantly recognised this him, stood proudly in their window, but couldn’t think where I remembered him from.
After popping into the coffee shop to ask the lovely ladies, it all came flooding back to me! 

He was part of a wooden coin machine called ‘The Queue’ which was in Neals Yard when I was a child. And thanks to google, I found a video of him in action with his fellow que-ers in line at the bakery waiting for bread. After a shock announcement from the bakery, they each react in their own unique way. 

Watch the video here.

All proceeds from the coin machine went to the Big Issue.

More coming very soon… I’m just having a cuppa!
