Brian, you are absolutely right... and I have egg on my face. So, I looked at the photo at higher resolution, and can now see it was built in 1923 and is both higher (IH 10'-0") and wider than the original. It's a clone, built to the same basic design, even to the features I pointed out , but to larger dimensions.
