1965 North Point Power Station | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

1965 North Point Power Station

1965 North Point Power Station
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Tuesday, June 1, 1965


I suggest that the 1970 date for this image is probably not correct. The larger building and chimney is the 'C' station that was not commissioned until mid-1966. The picture shows no cooling water discharges from the 'C' station pumphouse on the waterfront, but those for the 'A' and 'B' stations do show white water flow discharges. The chimney on the 'A' station is belching out smoke showing it is operational, which it wasn't by 1970. Also the 'C' station chimney shows no sign of smoke coming from it, so is not yet operational.

i would put the image's date at 1965 or early 1966.

All very pedantic! 

Hi There,

I believe the Oil Street tank farm might give other clues together with running an inventory of the high rises up the hills.  Might take a while to identify the blocks though.


Amended. 1965 it is.
