Date picture taken


The Island Eastern Corridor was built and opened in three phases; construction of the first section commenced on 8th April 1981 (Causeway Bay to Taikoo Shing) and that section was opened on 8th June 1984. So an approximate dating of 1982 for the above photo should be reasonable. Perhaps the construction state of other buildings in the background can narrow the date further.

Hi Klaus,

The Vehicular Pier is not in the photo at all.  They are a bit off towards the east.  The structure seen are the Eastern Corridor, still under construction.

Thanks & Best Regards,


Hi Klaus - for some reason the FLICKR link in the description just points back to this page rather than the original on FLICKR. Is this something that David might need to know about for potential upgrade issues? I checked a few others recently uploaded (from FLICKR) and they seem okay. I'm not sure wy this one should be different.
