Answered Structures on forward well deck

Hello all. I've been trying to identify a group of features on the forward well deck, between numbers 2 and 3 cargo hatches. What is the fairly tall post-like structure with the large round top, kind of looking like a modern radar apparatus? And then there are the two smaller black bits of gear either side of this structure. All appear on the C Deck plan, but none are actually annotated. I'm guessing something to do with hold ventilation? If anyone can help, thanks!

Adam: The structure between them is a French head mushroom ventilator. Here is a photo of another H&W ship's pedestal roller fairleads. They only had a horn on the inboard side.
