Old Praya before the reclamation

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1884

Postcard entitled "Praya before Reclamation" that was sent from Shanghai on 1906-05-11(!). Written by a German person (Hans), mostly illigble handwriting. Was onboad S.S. Thorn or Thoris (?).

Think City Hall is on the left, to the right only small barracks are visible. Probably Wardley House should have been there, and the second generations HSBC Headquarters Building isn't there yet. That would limit the date between 1883 and 1885.

The name of the pier can be read, the name of the company is a bit difficult. However, I think it reads: Hong Kong, Canton and Macao Steamboat Company.
