When writing the cell diagram, shouldn't Br- be written before AgBr as the reaction at the anode is going from Br- to AgBr?

Im not sure but maybe it has to do with the states each compound is in. AgBr is a solid while Br- is aqueous. And just to keep things neat the solids (Ag and AgBr) are placed next to each other.
I've seen this done in other examples
