Amazing photograph showing all three Vehicular Ferry Piers with ferries in action. Additionally, a passenger ferry has berthed alongside the oldest vehicular ferry pier.

Jordan Road Temporary Vehicular Ferry Pier

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1964

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.

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.

Gillies Ave pier aerial view 1963

Cropped from an aerial photo on the HKMS 2.0 page.

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.
