Victorian & Edwardian Dulwich had a large foreign community. A large number of wealthy European businessmen, mainly Germans, but also Dutch, Danish, French and Polish came to live and raise their families in the area. Most became naturalised and this illustrated talk will look at their careers and how their children, many educated at Dulwich College, quickly assimilated into their adopted country.
