There are the old street ballads, the immense variety of buildings, the growth of industry, the survival of ancient trades and handicrafts - all of them part of the unique pattern of East London life. And the pageant goes on, even if the actors change. That is the exciting thing. East London still keeps its traditions of neighbourliness, resists the temptations of race hatred, judges a person on his merits and not on his skin colour or his creed. Let us hope that, made brothers by adversity in the past, East Londoners will remain brothers unaffected by the varying fortunes of the future. Despite its grime and its poverty, it has been the happy and beloved home of millions of people. Material prosperity is not enough, and if East London is to be a really happier place it will be because of the mental and spiritual energy inspiring its re-birth.
