One of two South End Mosques that survived demolition in the 1970's. This one is slightly older, the other being Masjid Aziz - Pier Street Mosque. The mosque is still refereed to as Rudolph Street Mosque today which refers to the street name prior to the clearance of South End. The setting of the building has however been destroyed as the surrounding buildings have all been lost and road in front of it is much wider. (today known as Walmer Boulevard)
