In 1919, Gehr Construction Company announced the construction of Fifty Nifty Bungalows “on Bolton Avenue, Polk Street, and other beautiful residential streets.”  These bungalows were advertised to maximize room space because they are all built with closets to accomodate Murphy-In-A-Dor beds.

In 1901 Polk Street, although remodeling has been done to alter the original floor plan one may still see a closet that was originally built in such a way to house a bed that would have been pushed up and rolled into the snug space.  For a complete sales presentation on the Murphy Beds, click here.
