Hong Kong Panorama,1970

Amazing (or frightening) how careless smoke was released into the air in these years. Right hand side is North Point Power Station, and on the Kowloon Peninsula Green Island Cement Works emitted even more smoke.

Former Hung Hom Ferry Pier (1979) for Hung Hom/North Point service [????- ]

The present day foot bridge stands more or less along the old sea front.  We could use the bridge as a reference for the three piers.

On the left of this image are railway tracks and a junction intruding into the Cable and Wireless tower compound. Has anyone knowledge of what these tracks were for? Reclamation works appears to be going on in the distance. Is the track going under Chatham Road or is it a dead-end?

Hong Kong United Dockyards from the air. The orange coloured BARBER LINES cargo ship is in the drydock that now comprise the basement levels of the "Concrete Boat" in Shung King Street. The modern high rise was the dockyard's senior staff quarters. Containerisation is just creeping in at bottom right. China Light & Power's Hok Un Power station is top right. Image from early-mid 1970s. All very different now. IDJ

Marker Stone near 1-3 Ma Tau Wai Road, at the corner of an alley [????- ]

Hi there,

I spotted this last night.  Unfortunately the stone had already been weathered down.  I was unable to read the engraving.  It could be a K.I.L. or a H.H.I.L.  I will return for a second visit in daylight later.

The same alley is the one with pillars on both ends that  have mentioned before.  If you check up the street map of the location, you should be able to see the same alley continues on the other side of Ma Tau Wai Road straight to Gilles Avenue South and beyond.

Best Regards,

T
