On the very right hand side, the Morrison Street / Connaught Road Pier for ferries to Mong Kok & Sham Shui Po [????-????] is visible. The view is going east, so I believe Douglas Wharf isn't there but different ones. Also note the tram tracks which indicate Connaught Road. I believe the photo was taken from the Western Market.

I agree that this is further west than the Douglas Wharf. I've removed Douglas Wharf from the 'places shown' and added the Morrison Street pier in its place.

The next pier along the seafront has a semi-circular sign that reads 'British Canton Line'.
