We're currently trying to figure out what a pipe coming out of the floor of our 1905 house is.

We are located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The pipe is about an inch in diameter and capped. The cap has a 'G' on it. It looks very old, as there is significant corrosion on it. I can't get it open without heating it, and I haven't yet tried that.

I thought it might be the pipe leading to an undeground oil resevoir, but I don't think this is the case for two reasons. First, it is very rare that oil resevoirs would be underground in such an old house. Second, I already can see where the oil line ran from outside the house to the inside.
If anyone had any guesses on what this might be, or just a general direction, I'd be very grateful.
