I think it is some type of release to allow easier removal of the wheel for a flat; but for the life of me I can't see how it does it?..........enlightenment please??

When you've got a cable in the lever, that quick-release button - for lack of a better term - is tensioned and slides forward; the lever body will rest on its top edge, rather than over it.
When you want to operate the Q/R, simply pull the brake lever a tad, and flick the button upwards, so the lever can retract into the body. Pull the lever forward again, and the Q/R will click back into the closed position.

I have not seen one of those in a long time.

I'm pretty sure the "Carlton" badged Weinmann levers all had those. I know the ones on my Super Course do.
