North Point 'A' power station turbine hall in 1955

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1955

No. 7 steam turbine (the second one) was in commission as early as 1932 so survived the war.

This was an unusual type to see in the 1960s as it was a Brush Ljungstrom machine, unlike the usual conventional British steam turbines similar to No 9 in the foreground.

K. Wah Centre, North Point [1991- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1991-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

Located at 191 Java Road. According to their website :

Completed in 1991 as the headquarters of K. Wah Real Estates and the companies of K. Wah Group, this 30-storey waterfront tower is the first and only Grade-A office building in Hong Kong to have a private pier.

It is easily distinguishable from other buildings by its turquoise colour.

North Point view

On Flickr, this photo is assigned to the year 1967. A comment says: "I'm quite sure is Provident Centre, which was completed in 1983."

I agree with that, as two of the three chimneys of the North Point Power Station are wrapped, certainly for demolition. The power station was 
decommissioned in 1979. So probably this photo was taken in 1981-82..
