Silver Star Hung Hom 1981.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1981

Passengers took a short path to the left, past the locomotive turntable, to reach the KCR Terminus.

1931 Kowloon- Hong Kong ferry.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1931

Taken shortly after my grandparents, Edgar and Kathe de Chaffoy, arrived in Hong Kong. NB First class entry, and stars used in the decorative ironwork.

Star Ferry—Solar Star -1958

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1958

 

Rear of my photo says “Solar Star” arriving at island terminus- March 1958. This terminus looks new? different to the colour postcard l bought in 1957 and uploaded previously of the same terminus. The ferry also looks as though it has been given a refit?, or maybe a new ferry given the old name?

Night Star ferry

1952

Why was the Night Star's name painted out and the number 555P added?  The other ferry in the background has been treated in the same way. (Andrew S)

Star Ferry 1955.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1957

This photograph was probably taken shortly before the new Star Ferry pier was opened.

Star Ferry.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1951

One of the unconverted Star Ferries that looks to be still burning coal.  In the background a large cargo liner(?) is moored alongside what I think is the pier closest to the Star Ferry pier at Tim Sha Tsui.  I cannot make out what the large structure is behind the liner - the dark side might(?) be the ships funnel but what is the other, lighter coloured bit?  Is the whole thing a gas holder or an oil storage tank?

HONG KONG1 Star Ferry Hong Kong 1b-page-001.jpg

1930

I have added this photograph of the Star Ferry with Hong Kong in the background. Taken from another ferry. I suspect the photograph may have been taken in the early 1930s

Star Ferry.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1956

It looks as though this ferry, with itsenclosed section midships, was using the old star Ferry pier just prior to the new pier being opened - unless it was out of commission awaiting a refit.
