Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Good morning. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of Nov. 6, 1902, revealed that there would be a scarcity of anthracite coal during the winter months. In those days, coal was almost universally used for heating homes, businesses and institutional buildings. The Eagle said that most people would have to make due with soft coal, which was much less efficient.
