Default Tranny fluid reservoir?

Hey Guys,

So first off i apologize if this comes off as newb-ness.
I picked up my car at the end of last season, so only now am i starting to dig into it.
Please take a look at the pictures...What is the aluminum can?
It has two ports, one which goes down to the engine right behind the top right pulley (i'm trying to point to it in the picture)
The second port leads to some aluminum lines that pass in front of the radiator then return back. (In the picture you can just barely see the line transition to the aluminum line as it sneaks under the sidewall)

--custom power steering can....

Thoughts?

Google (and TOR Browser) are our friends:







Also available in glow-in-the-dark formula (which sounds like exactly the kind of thing I wouldn't want rammed into a bodily orifice):






For those who like it rough:






And, from the same manufacturer, the Miata owners' version:
