Think the chimney belongs to the Oriental Sugar Refinery. Morrisson Hill in the back.

This photo is almost the same as this one (Victoria Barracks 1870s), but it extends to both sides.

It looks as if two cranes are at the pier head.

The cubic building in front of Broadview Court is the Marine Police Aberdeen Base.

Brick Hill Marine Police Pier [1965- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1965-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

From the Public Works Report for 1965:

At Brick Hill, Wong Chuk Hang, also on the south side of the Island, construction of a pier and an access road to it was completed. This pier will be used by Marine Police launches supervising Aberdeen harbour and neighbouring congested waters.

Public Pier No. 17 - British Canton Line / Yuen On Steamship Co. Ltd [c.1924-c.1974]

Date Place completed: 
c.1924-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
c.1974-12-31 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

1920s photos show it with a semi-circular sign for the "British Canton Line". There's a good example at PH014_50-22 Gertrude Bass Warner photographs.

Maps from the 1930s / 40s, eg plates 3-5a and 3-5b in Mapping Hong Kong, label it as "Yuen On Steamship Co. Ltd, P.P. no. 17".

Hung Hom Ferry Pier (1st generation?) [c.1903-c.1963]

Date Place completed: 
c.1903-04-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
c.1963-12-31 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

I believe this was the first generation of ferry pier at Hung Hom, but please let me know if there was any earlier one. It was off Winslow Street, in front of the junction with Gillies Avenue.

Ma Tau Kok Road Refuse Boat Pier and Live Stock Landing [1936- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1936-07-01 (Day is approximate)

At the end of Ma Tau Kok Road there are the remains of an old pier.

Looking at the 1952 map, it's the nearest pier to the old cattle depot, so I wonder if it is where cattle deliveries by sea were unloaded? [Update: It was a combined refuse boat pier and livestock landing pier. See comments below.]
