The Begum of Bhopal was Sultan Jehan, the daughter and successor of Shah Jehan, Begum of Bhopal who had funded the construction of the Woking Mosque.
The Problem of Turkey 1920
In this clip you can see him exiting the Mosque about twenty-five seconds into the sequence.
Mohamed Ali at Woking Mosque, 1920
This clip shows James Lovegrove in the same sequence as above, as the people exit the mosque in the opening frames.
The picture below is a copy of a gift from one of JWL’s Muslim friends, enscribed with the following text:
Silence which speaks in green hills and in flowers bright
Here conveys a message “forget me not”
They change their sky but not their feelings
Who cross the sea
To dearest brother Habibullah, with fraternal love from Abdullah. 7th December 1920
