The internal notices and memos of the Bangor Railway and Electric Company (which later evolved into Bangor Hydro-Electric Company). These notices and memos were addressed to the company's trolley car motormen and operators. Purposes of notices include instructions for collecting fares, operating cars safely, reminding operators of danger areas in Bangor, procedures and rules of the company, and more.

Sample from October 27, 1920:

"As most of you are aware, during the past week and ten days, I have had numerous interviews with Conductors and have made a careful study of the methods of fare collection, and I discovered that many of our Conductors were in collusion with passengers to defraud. I sincerely trust that all Conductors are now collecting fares as they know it ought to be done, but it seems fitting that your attention should be called to the true situation as forcibly as I am able."

[There appears to be a volume 1 to this collection. Bangor Public Library was donated a sizable amount of documents from the Bangor Hydro-Electric Company archives. As yet, we have not archived each piece. If we find this volume 1, we will add it to our online collection].
