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.]

The sign says "Government Pontoon", it was not intended for public use - see also the fence and the barbed wire. 

Two years later, the pier ceased operation due to the next reclamation work.

Details from tourist maps issued in 1980 and 2014, respectively. Quitely likely both show the situation one or two years ago before they were printed.

On both Fenwick Pier is shown: in 1980 the site was north-west of the shore then, and north after a smaller reclamation (about 1977-1981) in 2014.
