What figure of speech portrays the wharf’s ‘crooked legs stockinged in barncales”? where else do it occur? How do it further the description?

I not get this one I think the figure of speech be personification but I not get where else it occur and how do it further the description?

    Yes, it's personification. People wear stockings, but the wooden supports of a wharf do not.

    I get a vivid picture of barnacles clinging to the wooden "legs" like stockings.
