Dear PoPville – Advice on Restoring my Manor Park (built in 1927) home’s interior to its original style

“Dear PoPville,

I recently bought a home in Manor Park (built in 1927) and would like to restore the interior to its original style. I’ve tried googling “DC style homes 1927” and nothing relevant pops up. Do you know where I can go to get original photos of DC streets/homes “back in the day?”

I would start by going to the public library’s Washingtoniana Collection. You can also dig around Shorpy and the Library of Congress too. Where else should they look?
