4L.7(a) - separating states in cell diagrams

For the reaction AgBr (s) <-- --> Ag+ (aq) + Br- (aq), why do you separate Ag(s) and AgBr(s) by a line in the cell diagram if they're both solids?

I think you separate Ag(s) and Br(s) with a line because Ag(s) is the electrode, whereas Br(s) is just a solid in the reaction.
