In this old (really not all that old comparatively, mid-late 19th c)
Boston neighborhood there are apparently still appliances w/o
thermocouple gas shut-offs.

I know because a local gas guy I was talking to told me it was a
nightmare if they had to shut off the gas in the street. They had a
list of those homes and had to send people to them one by one when the
gas came back on.

Go ahead, tell me that's not code...hahaha, that's not code, but this
is Boston.
