Probably not what you want, but here are Resolution, Revenge, Repulse, Renown, Churchill, Dreadnought and Swiftsure at Rosyth (from a link I googled): Link (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=rosyth+dockyards,+UK&ll=56.021551,-3.453301&spn=0.004506,0.007832&hl=en&t=k)
The main visible difference with these boats is that they tend to have permenant safety railings fitted on the casing, and sometimes the fin is cut away - this is to help offset the boat's centre of gravity rising when equipment is removed from inside the boat (for spares etc)

You wont find many K19 pictures shortly after the release of the film it was immediatly sent to the breakers, and now no longer exists.
I do have a picture of K19 on my album
K19 in 2001
K19 as she was in 1961
