During the 1800's people used natural gas to light their homes. A wast product of the gas-purifying process was a sticky black substanced called coal tar. The tar was unusable and very often was dumped into local rivers, but today, coal tar is used for medicines, dyes, fertilizers, and other products.

Is it intentional you call it "col ar" the first time?

I can't get the video to play but by the name I think I've seen it.

substitute 'natural gas' with 'coal gas'

(i work with old coal gas sites)

the processes used also produced a whole range of other less desirable products including cyanides..

My grandparents always used coal tar soap, yucky dark yellow stuff that was supposed to be good at killing germs. We hated it. They also had hard, greaseproof paper as toilet paper! Did you EVER have that in the States?
It was in all public toilets until recently....
