More like 1916:
"SU" just means "steel underframe", and isn't really a Southern Ry. car designation (from what I can tell, they didn't have any, just engineering drawing designations which were far longer that two characters). And car 150555 here matches the later 1920s cars within a couple of inches (except inside dimensions, of course).

It appears to be a very late predecessor of the Southern SU boxcar, whose construction started in 1922.  A great find, Claus.
