Warsaw pre-1939 districts: Orla str. and Kr #warsaw #holocaust

Can anyone tell me the official names/numbers of administrative Districts that these two streets were in: 1930 August 28. 5 Orla str. (in English: Eagle street), Warsaw and 1935 September 7. Krolewska str 29A, Warsaw ?

In both 1930 and 1939 Warsaw homeowner directories, Orla 5/7 is listed in district XII and Krolewska 29a in district I.

Many thanks for this!
How far back do the owner directories go for Warsaw? Where can I access them?
Adolf Tarnower was born in district V/VI, Sygnatura 77 but his family in 1930 was at Orla str and in 1935 at Krolewska str 29A. He was an architect and businessman but I have not been able to find where he was living when his son Aleksandre was born on 20 Feb 1915. He had a sister also but I don't know her name yet.
I am searching for Aleksandre's Birth Record and perhaps also other forms of Identity document, such as a 
Familijna Ksiązka Legitymacyjna, or  “Metryka Urodzenia” or “Odpis Aktu Urodzenia”  or “Dowod Osobisty.

Warsaw directories of various types from 1784 to 1965 are full-text searchable at https://genealogyindexer.org. Warsaw is also part of many directories with coverage of all of Poland or other large geographic areas. You can see the list of Warsaw-specific directories included in the search at https://genealogyindexer.org/directories#Warsaw (scroll up a bit to see all-Poland coverage). By searching, you might discover other addresses where Adolf Tarnower lived or worked, but it's unlikely you will discover his sister's name in these sources, unless she was a co-owner of real estate.

Some Warsaw Jewish birth records for 1915 apparently survive, but I am not aware of any being online. See the inventory from the State Archives on szukajwarchiwach.

I have just found two commercial directories of 1916 that locate Adolf Tarnower at Orla 5, so that must be where his son Olek was born in 1915! Thanks very much for your help!
