Here’s a closer-up shot. Notice the crows (ravens?) flying about?
Actually the tower covers pipes . . .
What really delights me though is what the tower may have inspired: Edgar Allen Poe‘s “Annabel Lee.” To his sensitive mind, the tower suggested a castle; the castle a king; the king with a kingdom and of course a daughter, whom he couldn’t have.
Unrequited love . . . sounds like Alice.
Too bad Poe didn’t draw; I’d love to see his rendering of Annabel Lee.
