Cropped from Jordan Road Piers.

The photo shows a portal for lifting the bridge for the cars, a floating pier and finally the single-deck vehicular ferry. It looks as if it was (possibly only at this time) only used by trucks.

This aerial photograph shows Ferry Point Estate under construction, the Jordan Road Vehicular Ferry Pier and the Jordan Road Temporary Vehicular Ferry Pier. From around 1964.

The photo shows the high demand for vehicle transport: many cars waiting at the old vehicular ferry pier, and trucks for the temporary one - queuing all along Ferry Street. Also note the long queue of taxis.
