The politics of the East End was manifested in two ways. This particular story focuses on the building of a community club. This story merits telling both because it is indicative of the capacity working class people have to build institutions which enhance life in their neighbourhoods, and because the community club, at least in the form it finally took in the East End and other working class areas in Brandon, has many of the characteristics of a socialist institution.
