Why were the stacks(funnels?) angled back? Was it to help clear the smoke from inside the stacks ?

Mark,
Raked(Angled)funnels slightly improve uptake for the evacuation of fumes/combustion products from the furnaces.
Raked funnels are slightly more aerodynamic and far more pleasing to the eye than vertical funnels.
