"HAD" --> he'd "taken" me to town. Use the verb to distinguish it : )

It is 'would'. The form 'would' + infinitive' is used to describe a habitual action in the past. It has a similar meaning to 'used to'. 'On Saturday mornings..he would take me to town and I would drag him around the art shops.' is the same as saying 'On Saturday mornings..he used to take me to town and I used to drag him around the art shops.'
