The present day foot bridge stands more or less along the old sea front. We could use the bridge as a reference for the three piers.
It seems to me that this pier was reactivated from about 1990 to 1991 when the new pier south-west of it was lost to reclamation. In 1991, it was replaced by the current pier.
The pier at this marker operated from 1963 to 1975 for north point line only. From 1975 to 1979, wanchai service was added to this pier. In 1979, both lines moved to a new pier in the picture below:
The hunghom to north point pier did not need to be reactivated. In 1988, the north point service just moved to the temporary pier at Hunghom Bay Center with the other services. In 1991, they moved to Whampoa garden.
I've added a Place for the 1979 pier at https://gwulo.com/node/56678
