How does the writer use language to describe London as it is now? Chapter 1 Paragraph 2

PEA/PEE paragraph please...I'm really struggling with this question so it would be very helpful if I got some feedback.

Orwell describes Air Strip One, London, as a grey and bleak place. The city looks little changed from its post-revolution destruction. It seems to resemble an industrial utilitarian Soviet Union.

Outside, even through the shut window-pane, the world looked cold. Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no colour in anything, except the posters that were plastered everywhere. ch.1
