Eid Mubarak

British Pathé wishes a very happy Eid to Muslims worldwide. This vintage newsreel shows English Muslims attending celebrations at Woking Mosque in Surrey in 1926.

The lives of Muslims in Britain were well-documented by Pathé News. As well as the above Eid al-Fitr footage, there is news coverage of Ramadan, Eid al-Adha, and the opening of London’s first Mosque.

For some reason the cameramen often seemed reluctant to travel further than Woking, but the films are nevertheless interesting and a selection of them can be viewed via this link.
