The architecture of Battleship Potemkin

Yesterday I was watching the silent film Battleship Potemkin (1925) and thought the most famous image is the last one, the impressive shot of the ship that seems to be out of the screen.
I´ve enjoyed all the expressionist images, and decided to share in this blog a few ones that show the architecture of the harbor of Odessa.
Pay special attention to the hanging clothes in public places, I´m wondering if this is a dramatic white against black aggregate or if it really was the people´s habit.
The images are screen shots from my computer. As a bonus, the ship in the last scene.
