Temporary Servicemen's Pier (Wanchai) [1964-????]

Date Place completed: 
c.1964-09-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

Temporary servicemen's pier at Harcourt Road in front of Caine House. This was probably used when Fenwick Pier was damaged by typhoon Ruby (September 1964).

Wikipedia reports:

  • 1964: The Pier had to be rebuilt after typhoons Wanda and Ruby dealt severe blows to the building.
  • 1965: The rebuilt Pier opened in June.

Possibly this temporary pier was in service for less than a year, maybe longer.

For me it's a Star Ferry at the pier located at the end of Gillies Avenue. January 1963 it's still there and reclamation work in this area has not started yet.
