Although in a highly multicultural area, Brent Museum used to hold relatively limited amounts of materials from post-war immigrants to Britain. More has been collected recently. There is some costume, and a certain amount of packaging, from the main communities in the area (Indian, Caribbean and Irish).
Some multicultural material in the museum’s collections is connected with local antiquarian Titus Barham (d. 1937), an eclectic collector, and with the 1924-25 British Empire Exhibition at Wembley.
Jewish immigration in the 1930s is better represented, thanks to two large groups of photographs and papers, but late nineteenth century Jewish immigration is not represented at all.
There are a few items connected with other groups, notably a strong collection connected with Ticinese Swiss immigrants.
