    1912! My house was already 11 years old. A quick google says the 'gas' is produced burning coke to obtain fuel, mainly for illumination. But the truck load includes bags, making home equipment unclear.
    Now if, I don't know who, someone was to say the bags ARE gas, we'd have a field day punting that around.

    One more of Jon's streak, finding really high quality black and white photos. Nothing details subjects like good black and white.

    I would dare a guess the bags contain coke, likely a by product sold for heating and cooking. If anyone knows I would love to hear.

    My WAG says so too; but those bags aren't very big. They're definitely working in residential area. Many of the homes around here were built with coal chutes direct to bin storage, all those heated with hot water radiators.
    And how I'm crazy, seeking that same radiant method to heat shop. Foot thick brick walls & 17' high, ~200k pounds of cast iron, who wouldn't?
    I've no love for those hanging or torpedo gas forced air burners. Stand here - bake lasagna; stand here 1 foot away and grab ice cold machine handles. Ineffective zone control = Total waste of energy!

    Yup, cooking then, cleaner n hotter than coal, less needed.
    With all that thermal mass we all know where the neighborhood will go knocking when the power goes out with negative temps. ;-)

    At the blacksmith shop Clarence kept a bag or 2 of the granulated gas coke to assist in lighting the forges A 1/4 newspaper page with a fistful of the gas coke rolled up inside of it then a couple shovels full of coal 1 kitchen match and a few minutes later you could begin whirling the blower handle
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
