From Coal to Solar

Tomorrow I am taking a guided walk from the end of Bay St to Gasworks. I'm experimenting with google maps to see how they work for these walks.
Click 'From Coal to Solar' to get the briefest idea of a time when Gasworks actually manufactured gas through baking coal in great ovens called retorts. The gas was then scrubbed and cleaned, before being distributed to households.
