Isn't it interesting how so many architectural styles draw on the tower to distinguish themselves?...the way we used to don identical uniforms of denim and tie-dye to be unique.
Edwardian/Period revival, Romanesque Revival, Queen Anne (tower 'de rigeur'), Tuscan villa (watchtower a must-have, never know when trouble will arise), the eclectic Italianate/Second Empire 'I'll take one of everything' for the upwardly mobile c.19 merchant, they all have that tower in common.
Perhaps it's human nature, to want to cocoon in a safe place and look down on the world passing by.
