Ray Cumming's The Shadow Girl, in its first (American) paperback appearance (unauthorised edition copyright 1947?) Since I haven't read this - I'll have to quote from the back cover:
Overnight a tower sprang up in the city park - where there had been none. And a girl ran from it, seeking help. But the price of her rescue could mean destruction to that town not once but three times over. For the tower was a time-bridge that brought a tyrant's future metropolis face to face with a piratical colony of the past - to make today's city their battleground! The was serialized in Argosy in 1929.
