This article is part of research work in progress based on life story interviews with long-term Spanish immigrants that arrived in the United Kingdom between 1950 and the late 1970's. The work combines the analysis of the life story narratives with the information extracted from ethnographic observations carried out during the interviews at the immigrants' private space and work place.

Through contradictions identified between the immigrants' life narratives and the ethnographic observations of two specific case studies the article tries to reflect on the identity conflicts that immigrants can experience during their adaptation and integration processes when they are faced with a host society and a public opinion that overtly manifest themselves as hostile to immigration.
