The shadow of the tall buildings is contrasted with bright splashes of colour worn by pedestrians. The character of the old buildings are recorded with a lightness of touch characteristic of Brown’s style. The buildings almost have a life of their own in this atmospheric scene. Lines are not rigid but have a fluid quality which lends them life and light.
