"The ways were foul and narrow, the shops and houses wretched, the people half naked, drunken, slipshod, ugly."
This picture is some what dark and dreary with the rain pouring. Although it doesn't have ally ways, it is very sad. This quote describes what some places in London were like, and how some people were experiencing life. Unfortunately, even if not to this degree, we still have people who can't feed their children, live on the streets, and are dressed in rags. We must remember to help others as much as Scrooge must remember.
