北角碼頭 north point pier

2013.4.7 | 北角碼頭 north point pier

北角碼頭自北角邨拆後便見黯然。依稀記得渡輪還是日常必需的交通工具的日子,這片地人聲鼎沸,肩磨穀擊,尤其黃昏的時間,大家為做飯都來買海鮮。如今盛況不再,倒讓我有機會欣賞碼頭的建築,一列的圓柱,紙皮石(馬賽克)鋪飾,昔日平常的建設,今日看來味道十足。

with the north point estate closed down in 2002 and torn down in 2003, north point pier’s hay day came to an end. back then, ferry was the public transportation, people went to work and return home taking the vessels, swamps of people in and out, just like tide and ebb. there are still ferries shuttle passengers to hung hom, kwun tong and kowloon city in low-frequency. they are more for nostalgic, leisure and a relatively cheaper mean of daily traffic. one now can take time to appreciate the practical with aesthetic piece of construction – the columns and the mosaic.
