About This Photo

Walker Evans disliked the term "nostalgic"; however, looking at this view down Main Street in Greensboro, Alabama, it is easy to understand why people use this term to describe his photographs. The two-lane street seen here is lined with charming buildings that house a barber shop, a coffee shop, a telegraph office, and the Alabama Power Company. Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper advertisements abound, while traffic is limited to a single, moving car. In the background, the commercial thoroughfare gives way to a tree-lined street, which leads to the town's rural surroundings. This old photograph dates to 1936.
