Default J.M WHITE...A Discovery

I just recently discovered, in studying photos of the J.M. WHITE, that the whistle is located not on the side of the pilothouse but in the middle of the pilothouse's roof. I have never seen this on any other boat. Look at the picture of the pilothouse you'll see the steamline going inside the pilothouse (or it looks like that to me).
My question is why did Howards put it there and is this the only boat they did it on
