The pale moonlight streamed through a shattered fanlight
over the door; the air was unwholesome and chilly, like that of a vault.
The night had come; the fanlight
over the door shone bright; the two windows of the dining-room where the cloth was being laid, and the three windows of the drawing-room where Maria would be waiting dinner, glowed softlier through yellow blinds.
He found that he was in a grotto, went towards the opening, and through a kind of fanlight
saw a blue sea and an azure sky.
Philip noticed in the fanlight
a cardboard on which was an announcement that apartments were to let.
Above the other door, which opened on to the landing, there hung a fanlight which could be drawn by a cord when some ventilation became absolutely necessary.
He turned on his second tube and opened for half a minute the fanlight over the door.
One house, however, second from the corner, was still occupied entire; and at the door of this, which wore a great air of wealth and comfort, though it was now plunged in darkness except for the fanlight

His eye fell upon a newly-painted tenement which had been recently converted into something between a shop and a private house, and which a red lamp, projecting over the fanlight
of the street door, would have sufficiently announced as the residence of a medical practitioner, even if the word 'Surgery' had not been inscribed in golden characters on a wainscot ground, above the window of what, in times bygone, had been the front parlour.

As I approached the house I saw a tall man in a Scotch bonnet with a coat which was buttoned up to his chin waiting outside in the bright semicircle which was thrown from the fanlight
. Just as I arrived the door was opened, and we were shown up together to Holmes' room.
Holmes's cold, thin fingers closed round my wrist and led me forward down a long hall, until I dimly saw the murky fanlight
over the door.
