That's, I think, a high-level running board. Notice that the "normal" low-level running board is absent from the first car but present on all the others. Various posts on this list have pointed out that, in general, running boards were moved from high level to (ca 1910) mid level to (ca USRA) "normal" low level. But there were exceptions. At that point I bow out of the discussion, and defer to those more expert than I.
