CSH Wharf and Jardine Wharf shown on the coast near Western St. A few questions:

1) What did CSH stand for?

2) My father recalls taking the ferry from Kowloon to near Western St then walking up the hill to King's College. What passenger ferry service would have operated there?

That would be Yaumati Ferry. I know that at least up to 1970 there were only Star and Yaumati.  Star only had the Central and Wan Chai routes.

Hi There,

That would likely be the Wilmer Street Pier instead.  There used to be a ferry route from Sham Shui Po to Wilmer Street back then.


Yes, that Ferry service to Sheung Wan at Wilmar Street operated by Yaumati Ferry Co.

Looking through the maps at, the pre- and post-war maps show the first pier west of Western Street is the China Merchants Pier.

Thanks David
