.. apparently. It .. WOULD .. keep them from escaping en route. Similar to taking someone to a hanging I imagine.

They used those open air wagons in the old days. Now they arrive in plush, air conditioned buses. Oh, the sacrifices I make to keep those beautiful bikini girls satisfied ....  -- ssuR

Buckboards, as I remember them, always had sides.   I suppose there's exceptions as always.   It seems the Wikki site and others use a very loose interpretation of the word and images range all over the place.
Generally a buckboard is a short farm vehicle with one or two seats.   It is NOT a farm wagon so to speak.

A buckboard is a four-wheel open carriage with the seat or seats attached to a flexible board running between the front and rear axles.

Your right Dave, these three wagons are box or spring wagons.

Loading watermelons from a wagon into a ventilated boxcar, somewhere in North Carolina, 1928.  Looks like the print is reversed.

Looks like that wagon must have had a fairly fancy paint job when it was new.

I'd figure something like this Ivan Collins model.   Not really my area of expertise, but I guess a nice paint job would have been typical for a new wagon, as many commonplace things of that era were ornamented with paint and trim.

Here's a couple of sites devoted to this form of modelling

http://www.scalemodelhorsedrawnvehicle.co.uk/


Then go to the forum and check out the "Progression of a Model" section, there's a few eye openers in there.
