Default Double brake air tanks?

Hi Guys
I am new to T birds, well american cars in general to be honest.
I have a 1960 square bird with power brakes, which I haven't had the pleasure of even driving yet as it needs work.
It has an air tank where the washer bottle should be and another T'd off the same pipe located behind it in the inner wing.
Have any of you seen this set up before, is it correct?

No, it should only have a vacuum tank hidden inside the fender. They may have added the second one because the other on was leaking or was not generating enough vacuum. I would remove it and see if it makes any difference.
