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

We used to think that the streets in 1950s Hong Kong were busy!  Can anyone identify this stretch of what looks like Hennessy Road? (Andrew S)
