It was the old Kowloon City bus terminus serving as the final stop in Kowloon City from the 1920s till Nov 6 1960. Even in 1958, some lines had already moved to the Kowloon City pier terminus.

The terminus was located south of China Light and Power (CLP) power substation at the Lung Kong rd-Prince Edward rd W junction as shown in this 1960 map. The label is a bit unclear but it probably reads CL & P  Co LTD something.

In the above 1955-1957 picture, the CLP substation was blocked from view by some temporary structures.

The CLP substation and its surroundings can be found in this picture. Note that the old building A can be seen in both pictures.
