19th Century furnace for gas lighting. Historical artwork showing a coal-fired furnace designed by the Scottish engineer William Murdoch (1754-1839) in 1798 to produce gas for lighting the Boulton and Watt factory in Soho, London, UK. The furnace heats coal to the point of decomposition and the resulting gases pass out through a chimney (upper right). The gasses were then fed through a system of pipes and lit to illuminate the interior of the factory's main building. Published circa 1867-1870.
