Figures that there would be a Walt Disney Archives at The Reagan Library. Here we see the filming model of Captain Nemo’s Nautilus submarine from Disney’s 1954 movie adaptation of Jules Verne’s literary classic Leagues Under the Sea.
Steam run submarine, but old Jules Verne's submarine was run by saline batteries. I suppose it wouldn't be steampunk without the steam. Steampunk is welcome in the world I want to build, but only if it respects the world I want to build.
