Klaus, a big Thank You.  The Sutherland Street Pier (D) was located right at the Sutherland - Connaught West junction.  Grandpa's office was the 5th unit to the left on this photo.  I think when ownership changed, the pier's name also changed.   My boat from Guangzhou might have used it or one nearby.  Regards,  Peter
