Left of the Wanchai Ferry Pier is another, small one. My 2011 tourist map shows "Star Ferry To Tsim Sha Tsui" for both piers.

On the left, an early stage of Blake Pier can be seen.

People are waiting, probably for the arrival of an important person. Date is approximate, it could be more exact if the arrving person could be identified.

The sign says "Government Pontoon", it was not intended for public use - see also the fence and the barbed wire. 

Two years later, the pier ceased operation due to the next reclamation work.

Details from tourist maps issued in 1980 and 2014, respectively. Quitely likely both show the situation one or two years ago before they were printed.

On both Fenwick Pier is shown: in 1980 the site was north-west of the shore then, and north after a smaller reclamation (about 1977-1981) in 2014.
