A large eyeballs stare behind the windows of a street as a gigantic head looms over the roofs
London about me gazed at me spectrally. The windows in the white houses were like the eye sockets of skulls. About me my imagination found a thousand noiseless enemies moving.

Description

Nightmarish view of a street fading into darkness and in which a large eyeball stares behind every window, as a gigantic and threatening head topped with a lantern looms over the roofs.
The caption reads in this Belgian edition:

Toute la ville semblait me regarder avec des yeux de spectre. Les fenêtres des maisons blanches étaient des orbites vides dans des crânes, et mon imagination m’entourait de mille ennemis silencieux.
