Re: Lateral Running Boards

Those end running boards were only required on cars with metal roofs. This was required from the earliest time metal roofs were implemented. 

Look closely at the cars without the end running boards. They have wood roofs.

Folks,

In the 1943 photo by Jack Delano that has been under discussion lately, I notice several cars without laterals. When, if ever, were laterals mandated?

Thanks,
