  1. Great picture, Jason. Could that be uncle Vito sitting on the curb stone?

    The Gassy or Gas House was used in the manufacture of coal gas from coal. Coal gas was used for street illumination, cooking, heat, etc. Barges would bring coal up the coast from southern mines and many North Enders remember swimming off the barges which were docked where the skating rink is.
    One of the byproducts of this process was coal tar which was just dumped into the harbor. When we still had a beach on Commercial St. you would see big lumps of this tar in the sand and you had to be careful not to step in it.
