Boom Holder Thingy ?

I''ve noticed on some more traditional boats, there''s a (Generaly wooden) bar over the cocpit where alot of more modern boats have a radar arch, except a bit more forward so that the boom could rest on it if the topping lift were lowered a bit.

Whats the purpouse for this? Why did they have it and why dont modern boats have them?

Thanks
