Seventy-five years ago this week - between August 4 and 9, 1941, to be exact - James Bond was born.
Hotel Palácio Estoril, Portugal is not only Bond's hotel in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but Ian Fleming himself stayed here during the Second World War and it might have given him inspiration for his first James Bond novel, Casino Royale.
