How Does Stevenson’s writing here make London sound so sinister?

The first fog of the season straight away makes London sound bad because when you think of fog it’s not a great weather to have and it contributes to London sounding sinister. Also the streets are dingy which make the area sound like it’s in poverty like ‘’ like a district of some city in a nightmare’’. The streets are also show a lack of light and people not really able to see where there going ‘’ the cab crawled from street to street ‘’. Also the ragged children that are living in the streets which also suggests poverty in the area and it also makes London sound like a bad place to be. The suggestion of the the women out of their morning glass and the city in a nightmare makes London sound like a place where Dr Jekyll should live because this description of London makes it sound evil like Dr Jekyll.

The part where the maid of Dr Jekyll house opens the door and she has an evil face and her look in odious joy which just sums up the area of London that is getting described in the extract. After the lady opens the door she explains that she has not seen Mr Hyde for a while which sound mysterious because the weapon to kill Carew said it belonged to Mr Hyde which creates a Mystery in the Area. She also says Mr Hyde behaviour has been irregular lately which could be because of the arrival of Dr Jekyll. Also when the officer asks to go in to checks Mr Hyde he face lights up in happiness which suggest that she is not fond of Mr Hyde.
