The Government Report for 1957 refers:

The progressive reclamation of land from the sea along the central section of the City of Victoria's waterfront recommenced with the construction of the foundations to a sea wall which, when completed, will enclose a strip of land 250 feet wide and 1,000 feet long. The sea wall will provide berths for the Macau ferries; the reclaimed land will provide sites for commercial and Government offices, as well as for the widening of Connaught Road Central to a width in keeping with present-day traffic needs.

The Government Report for 1958 refers:

The reclamation of a strip of land 250 feet wide between Rumsey Street and Morrison Street in Central Victoria, an area of about five acres, was completed during 1958. The sea wall retaining this reclamation will provide landing berths for the Macau ferries, and the reclaimed land, apart from providing valuable development lots, will permit Connaught Road Central to be widened.

Probably 1959 would be a good estimate for the start of operation.

The new Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal opened 1985, that could have been the end of this generation.

As places we have Macau Ferry Wharf [????-????] and Hong Kong Macao Ferry Terminal [????- ]. Both show the same location.

My suggestion is to merge both and have the marker where the "terminal" has it's. The new name should be "Hong Kong Macau Ferry Wharf (third generation)"

I've merged the two Places, as suggested.
