Lamp Having Regenerative Gas Burner
Gas lighting refers to the production of light from a gaseous fuel. Before electricity became sufficiently widespread and economical to allow for general public use, gas was the most popular means of lighting in cities and suburbs. Early gas lights had to be lit manually, but soon gas lights could light themselves.
