"The Dalston Lane Mural, painted in 1985, has become an image that many people are familiar with, thanks to the new East London line station opening opposite it. The mural, created by Ray Walker, is a composition based on the 1983 Hackney Peace Carnival. In the picture, the procession has just gone past Navarino Mansions on Dalston Lane. Trade union banners are waved to the right and to the left, a giant puppet figure representing the USSR and USA’s nuclear squabble is carried by men wearing skeleton masks. A brass band plays at the front of the as people watch them go by."
