Includes the announcement of new home construction projects by Bangor Hydro in Bangor, including on Royal Road -- a picture of a home at 114 Royal Road is featured on the December 1937 cover of Bangor Hydro Electric News.

"Early this week construction is being started on the first Kelvin Home in Maine. It is being erected by the Bangor Hydro-Electric Company, end as announced by President Edward M. Graham, its completion will help to point the way toward moderate cost homes that will offer the latest and most modern facilities for cutting the cost of better living. This first Kelvin Home will be located on Royal Road in the Fairmount section of Bangor. Charles R. Gordon is the real estate agent and William H. McPherson is the contractor-builder.

Mr. Graham and other officials have inspected several of the Kelvin Homes erected in other sections of the country and at Detroit they have seen the results of study by Kelvinator'e own research and engineering departments in their work with a number of the country's leading architects and builders. This home will have efficient, economical equipment for year 'round air-conditioning, electric cooking, refrigeration, and water heating and is so designed and constructed that it should cost the family living in this new home no more that it would cost the same family to live in an ordinary house."
