Historical Photos of Margate, NJ English Tudor Being Built

Built in 1937, this English Tudor was a Mahoney built home. As shown in the photo, a plaque that designated this was embedded in the slate walkway lined with hedges that lead up to the main front door of the home.

To the best of my knowledge there was only one previous owner of this English Tudor home prior to it becoming  known as the Rogers residence which included the office of Dr. Stanley P. Rogers MD. It was purchased in 1965 thus becoming the family home.

Perhaps you were one of his patients? Or a family friend who would stop by for a visit? Regardless, it was a very recognizable home.

To say to the extent that both my parents cherished their home is an understatement!

This English Tudor home in Margate Nj, along with many other old, beautiful homes on the island have sadly now been lost. Many were shocked and horrified that this home would be demolished – myself included, despite my best efforts to keep it from happening!

This style of home may not be to everyone’s liking given the bland, modern boxes that are now being built. But thankfully there are those that do. Otherwise why would shows like “This Old House” remain on the air for as long as it has and be so highly watched?

The Actual Home Building Sequence from the 1930s

I’d say it’s pretty rare to actually have historical photos of this beautiful English Tudor home in Margate being built. I remember years ago when the previous owners brought these photos to my parents and how they valued them. My mother would not even let copies be made for fear they would become damaged!

In the following historical black and white photos you will see the actual sequence of this home being built. From blank lot on the corner of Ventnor and Haverford Aves through the development stages to its actual construction completion. 

For those that may appreciate such supporting visuals, you will enjoy seeing the building sequence of such a well-known home on the island. I’d say in its own right it was a Margate landmark and it’s so terribly unfortunate that a beautiful piece of history has been lost forever. Suffice to say, custom crafted homes to this degree are no longer built in this day and age. Also there are few craftsmen left to undertake such detailed construction – inside and out.

History Lost…

A piece of Margate history is sadly gone for good. Not to mention it was a work of art. They don’t build homes like this anymore – and it NEVER should have been torn down!
