Might anyone know what this is?

Might anyone know what these 'stacks' are? I have seen a number of them around the area but for the life of me cannot fathom what they are for. Clearly they belong to another era, Victorian presumably, and so may well be redundant now.

I would be very interested to know if anyone has any suggestions...many thanks!

I think that it is a 'stink pipe' to vent the sewers.  I have found this article which describes their use: https://londonist.com/2016/08/the-victo ... lain-sight
