The first generation of the pier was built in 1900 the end of Pedder Street for serving dignitaries and colonial governors. It had no cover originally. But, in 1909, an Edwardian-style, structural steel pavilion was built on top, providing travellers with shelter. It was demolished in 1965, but the pavilion was preserved, dismantled and rebuilt in Morse Park in Wong Tai Sin, Kowloon as a park shelter. In 2006, the pavilion was again dismantled, restored to its original condition. The renovated structure was relocated to Stanley, where it stands next to Murray House, which was similarly relocated brick by brick.
