Onlookers gaze at a Maybach hired to take part in a parade of "supercars" for Morpeth School graduation day, on Rickman Street Estate in Tower Hamlets, east London on June 21, 2013. In the east London area of Tower Hamlets, one of the most deprived parts of the city according to government statistics, a trend has arisen which sees many 16-year-olds at local schools spending large sums of money to rent increasingly flashy cars for their National Record of Achievement (NRA) ceremony, an event roughly equivalent to a prom celebration. The teens, who are too young to drive, are chauffeured around the neighbourhood and attend the ceremony at school, often before spending a night on the town. Picture taken June 21, 2013.
