I have added three views of some of the local shipping. The first is of the Star Ferry, two arriving and leaving. The second appears to show what I would call roll on roll off ferries and the third appears to be of a landing craft?. Has anybody any thoughts on any of the photographs. All are from an old cinefilm

TST Star Ferry and bus terminus with Canadian Pacific liner

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

Attributed to about 1925.

Tracks visible.

1931 TST Star Ferry Port

Tracks leaving the Kowloon Dockyards are visible, unfortunately too many busses block the view to decide if the tracks run across the bus terminal.

Turn round 180 degrees from the clock tower in the previous photo and this was the view - Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry bus terminus in Kowloon. The famous Star Ferry boats run across the harbour to Hong Kong island from behind the building behind the buses.

I don't know what buses run in Hong Kong these days but in 1981 they were all clearly British designs. Not to mention the British weather.

In 1949, the tracks to the Kowloon Wharves are still there. As there are no aerial photos in between, the next one is from 1959. Here the new concourse has alreday been built. 

 

1953 TST Star Ferry

It looks as if the tracks to the Kowloon Wharves have been cut. Date is given as 1953, unclear if this is correct.
