The wire continues to the top-right corner of the detail view, so I'm guessing that it tethered a utility pole. I'm sure that the board was just there to stop people walking into the wire, or at least reduce the impact. Nowadays they just put plastic or metal tubes around the base of the wires up to a height of about seven feet.
