At the hospital the queue to get your prescription card dated was too long. I was in the queue and halfway through the queue there was a wall. Queue had a curve at the wall. It seemed it ended there but it was just the half part of the queue until that wall.

Please check my sentences.

It's a bit of a mess- you're mixing up basic pronouns, so it's not clear whether you mean you or I. There are also articles missing. And there may be cultural issues- I have not heard of getting prescription cards dated.

At the hospital the queue to get the prescription-cum-appointment card dated (they date-stamp it as an evidence and for records as well) was too long. I was in the queue and halfway through the queue there was a wall. Queue had a curve at the wall. It seemed it ended there but it was just the half part of the queue until that wall.

At the hospital​, the queue to get the prescription-cum-appointment card dated (they date-stamp it as [STRIKE]an[/STRIKE] evidence and for their records [STRIKE]as well[/STRIKE]) was too long.

I was in the queue and halfway through the queue there was a wall. (That sounds as if they built a wall at the halfway point of the queue!)

The queue [STRIKE]had a[/STRIKE] curved/turned at​/round the wall.

[STRIKE]It seemed it ended there but it was just the half part of the queue until that wall.[/STRIKE]
It looked like the queue ended at the wall but it continued the other side of the wall.

See above.

Could you please tell me the correct way to say it?

ueue had a curved/turned at​/round the wall.


It means "the queue turned at the wall or curved round the wall". Is it correct?
