At the bottom left is Central Vehicular Ferry Pier, the eastern temporary berth has already been removed and the area reclaimed. The western temporary berth is still there.

Then two piers (the first one to Shamshuipo and Tai Tok Tsui, trhe second one is the Outlying Islands Ferry Pier), and a double Government Pier. 

The place can be seen already where the Rumsey Street car park will built in 1970.

Central & Sheung Wan

No date given. The old building right of the Harbour Office and behind the multi-storey car park (Wing On Department Store) has been demolished, it stood there still in June 1971. So the date was guessed to be 1972 1974 (see comment below).

Think the piers on the left are the Governments Piers near (todays) Gilman Street. Macau Ferry Wharf on the right. 

It looks as if the reclamation has been finished in this area.
