The aesthetics of this photograph are very strong. There is great depth and feeling of place and the tone of the print really adds to that feeling. This is a photograph that I don't feel inclined to look for form in, but rather just take in the feeling of it.
Thanks also for posting the woman and the lamp post photograph along with the significance of it - very interesting. That's a good example of a time when understanding the backstory of a photograph helps in understanding it.
