That second shot, looking up at the empty roof jack, is perfect.  There is no end to the stupid stuff we find.
Even more frightening was the 50 year-old furnace at the other end of the vent and confirmation of CO in supply - no surprise.
It's a good thing that they put that cap on it!! :))   I don't have a picture, but I found one that may top this one; a basement gas water heater, atmospheric draft type, but without any flue connector at all, which was "OK", because there was no chimney to connect it to anyhow!  I used to try to figure out why things were done in the worst way possible, but I gave that up because I could never come up with a reasonable answer.  Now I just enjoy the experience.
