Remnants of the Great Eastern?

The Great Eastern was a luxury paddle wheel steam ship with sails used as a backup. Built by Brunel.https://www.google.ca/search?q=the+great+eastern&sa=X&hl=en&tbm=isch&imgil=ttiCEcslEPjuFM%253A%253BMh8UxbHwkVcHfM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Ftelephonecollecting.org%25252Fgreateastern.html&source=iu&pf=m&fir=ttiCEcslEPjuFM%253A%252CMh8UxbHwkVcHfM%252C_&usg=__Tncu3AoQiCqZEK4FSasikmnGUUA%3D&biw=1920&bih=950&ved=0ahUKEwi3pfGH1p3WAhWq34MKHbrZCiwQyjcIiwE&ei=0cm2Wff4C6q_jwS6s6vgAg#imgrc=_https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Great_Eastern
