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.
