Shutters originally on Petworth Wardman homes?
Does anyone know whether the 1910s-1920s Wardamn rowhouses in Petworth originally had shutters? And if they did, what style they were? I’ve seen some historic pictures of the neighborhood that show the fronts of the houses without shutters. That said, our house has what appears to be the original shutter pins still mounted to the outside frame of the windows.
It’s possible that shutters were added later but that seems a bit odd. I believe our neighbors have the same leftover shutter pins — but then, there are no original shutters on our whole block (or any of the surrounding blocks). We would love to add functional shutters similar to what the homes originally had – if anyone has any insight – please let us know!
