Very interesting picture. They apparently weren't as concerned about safety back in the '40's as later. No railing along the side of the walkway on the side of the engine. It looks like maybe there's a rail to grab onto at the bottom of the black area on the side of the engine.

Yep, had side rails along the nose and usually plenty of oil on the walk way.
