Given that Green Island can be seen behind, I guess one is looking at the Chung Sing Benevolent Society Bathing Pavilion off Victoria Road where the Dragon Boat races were held. A photo from 1958 of the Governor attending the races can be viewed here

That sounds just about spot on. I have a feeling that it was a swimming pavilion.
