Gas Light and Coke Co (Est 1812; nationalised 1949) produced London's domestic gas supply operating more than a dozen gasworks. It's HQ was in Horseferry Rd., Westminster. Coal came from the North East transported by a large fleet of colliers (managed by Stephenson Clarke) typically of the 'flat iron' type with low air draught (hinged mast and funnel) for negotiating London's bridges. "Horseferry" is a good example. A by-product of the process was coke which is very likely what she is discharging at Delfzijl in this photo.
