What does an original Wardman style house door look like?

We are planning to replace the front door of our house in CH.  We live in a two story Wardman row house built in 1906.  Current door is poorly insulated and very obviously not the original front door.  We are replacing the door, transom window and sidelight but keeping the interior oak frame.
Anyone have a picture of what an original, Wardman style front door looked liked?  We are thinking to go oak with partial glass but would love to get close to the original if we can.

I’m fairly certain our door was original when we bought the house.  We’ve since had to replace it, but it was glass on the top half with two or three horizontal raised panels on the bottom half.  Like this: http://www.customglassdoors.com/rustic/dmc69_doors.html (without the sidelites)

On Google maps, search for 1343 Perry Place Northwest, Washington, DC and then look at Street View. I believe both the red door on that taupe colored house is original Wardman, as is the white door on the yellow house just to its left.
You can zoom in to get a pretty good look. Just don’t be distracted by the white storm door in front of the red door. As you can probably figure out, that is NOT original.

Thanks everyone for the tips.  Although we are ready to give up our grill I don’t think we are ready for an almost full glass front door.  The pic from the Custom Glass Door company is probably going to be the way we go.
