immigrant population patterns

Photos from Lithuanica, the store for Lithuanian and some Polish products (mainly food), in a Dublin city center mall.

The patterns of service and societal layers crystallizing around sizable immigrant populations.

The size of an immigrant population as a factor in:
- how actively will its members look for, socialize with each other,
- how they are regarded by locals (on the scale from a positive color, exotic quests, towards a threatening intruder),
- how developed and concentrated are the service institutions (appearance of national stores, services like barbers and cleaners, restaurants, and the unofficial labels such as lebanese street, china town, arab district, etc).
