Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry terminal, Kowloon, Hong Kong, ca. 1930

Charles Gesner van der Voort (1916-1991) worked at Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC), with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tientsin (Tianjin), Rotterdam and London. At the start of the company, in 1903, Willem Kien (1877-1970) started to work for HCHC in Shanghai, later becoming director. In 1921 he left China and became director at the Rotterdam head office, at Diergaardelaan 36.

Willem Kien obtained this photo during a visit to Hong Kong in the 1930s.

The newsprint text cannot decide if to call it MAN TIM or MAN TIN. I suspect MAN TIN is correct..

I do not recall seeing any proper  photographs of this  oddity

Fares - Tram and Ferry

I should know this but can't remember.

What were the upper and lower deck fares on the trams? Did childrem pay half fares? I presume there were conductors on both decks.

When were the conductors replaced by cash receptacles?

Same questions for the Star Ferry - except of course there were no conductors. When did tokens replace cash?

Was the Yaumati Ferry fare the same as the Star Ferry?

Thanks

Victoria Harbour - Hong Kong

Three HYF ferries, no exact location given. My first thought was Kennedy Town, but I don't think it is.

Any better ideas?
