Topical Budget, the great British newsreel that ran from 1911-31, here shows a muslim festival at Woking Mosque, Surrey from over 80 years ago. After the Muezzin has lead the call (adhan) to prayer we pan along the rows of worshippers, who then pray as non-muslims observe the ceremony. An Indian prince can be seen in the crowd listening to the proceeding sermon.
Woking Mosque was built in 1889 and is currently a Grade II listed building.
