Hello Don and others. I very much remember as a child growing up in

MA in the late 40's and early 50's we would occasionally use coke.

usually was a little tight at the time but we would use coke

More expensive than bituminous coal or anthracite?

Any idea where the coke was made?

Where there regions where dealers sold both soft or hard coal for
home heating? I know industrial customers generally used soft coal in
areas where homeowners used anthracite.
