Tom Scherman's Incredible Nautilus Apartment

Tom Scherman was so enamored with Disney's 1954 film version of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea that he redesigned the inside of his apartment to resemble the Nautilus, all the while his landlord was none the wiser. Eventually the truth came out (the landlord didn't actually care) and the apartment gained notoriety. Tom even went on to help design the Nautilus at Disneyland Paris and other Disney attractions.

Tom also did an incredible job documenting the transformation of his apartment. The Disney And More blog has now posted large images of the album of this documentation. Click here to go there!

It looks like the end result was more like a real submarine (cramped and confined) than the Nautilus (which I always imagine as sumptuous and lavish).
