The top picture shows the massive bow of the RMS Queen Mary. The bottom picture shows the former RMS Queen Elizabeth (renamed Seawise University) burning in Hong Kong Harbour on 9th January 1972.

The ship later capsizes in the harbour and was dismantled for scrap between 1974 and 1975. The 1974 James Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, featured the wreck as a secret MI6 headquarters.

This is the original artwork from Look and Learn, no. 750, 29th May 1976.
