Vintage black and white advertising image of a gas heater. At the time, 1879, gas heaters were apparently something fairly new. The advertisement included a quotation about using gas for heating would one day exceed the amount of gas used for illumination.
This vintage drawing was published in 1879 in the December 30th edition of Harper’s Young People.
