Throwback Thursday Photo: Juma Masjid Mosque in Durban

The Juma Masjid Mosque in Durban, also known as the Grey Street Mosque is our featured throwback Thursday photo of the day. The photo originates from a postcard on the Facts About Durban website is undated, but by the look of the vehicles on the street, its pre-1950s.

Below is a modern-day color photo of the same mosque with its gleaming golden minarets — which looks quite the same as in the 1950s, but the skyline behind is very different now.
