Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Don’t think so much of these towns. Kind of pretty, cottages with vines and all that, but you don’t get any feeling that they’re up and coming and forward-looking, like American burgs. (S. Lewis, “Elmer Gantry”)
be up and coming = show great promise
Thanks for your efforts.
