At the end of the thirties (в конце тридцатых годов) Leesden End was an L-shaped town (город Лисден Энд имел форму буквы L; shape — форма, очертание).

I stopped looking round (я перестала оглядываться; to look round — оглядываться кругом, осматриваться). I said: "Read what (читать что)?" for I had been told (так как мне сказали) I would be asked to read I put on my dark glasses to shield my eyes from the sun and conceal my recognition from her eyes. row after row of letters (что меня попросят прочитать ряды: «ряд за рядом» букв).
