The authorship of the photographs is anonymous but this shot in particular shows a Walker Evans level of competency and in my opinion this image is better than much of his work from this same time frame. It is a stand out, though. The other shots in the collection are professional and good but not great like this one.

yeah, its not exactly a period piece... its got a timeless feel about it. and yeah.. just feels really nostalgic. I grew up in a 4-season region and i can identify with the look of the barren trees and the stark contrast of early spring daylight..
