Ash framing in boot floor

Matthew Myerscough’s car has recently shown an alternative construction for the boot floor region, and the photos present what looks like a tremendously original Nippy beneath many layers of paint. There are differences here to the details found in the boot blocks post here; the biggest being the use of brackets to attach the boot floor woodwork to the vertical stringers coming down the edge of the boot aperture (rather than screws inserted through the stringers before the metal bodywork was added). These brackets are recessed, presumably to allow the jack mount blocks to sit flat on the O/S corner right angle.

Can anyone offer evidence from their own cars to further support either of the constructions in the two posts as being original?
