It's a shame that the Eiffel Tower is not open to camera access. It would be especially interesting to see how it was assembled. For instance, how many men were needed to lift 500 tons of parts into place?
The first design was for a tower of 50 by 45 metres and meant to be made of wood rather than metal. The inventor, who lived in Paris, satisfied this project with his models and the plans published by the engineering firm Les Etablissements du Chemin de Fer, Rue Fontaine, Paris. A supplementary model of the G.E.F.S. tower, with a diameter of 43.4 m, was entrusted to the architect Gustave Eiffel on March 25 1897.
In this way, the tower that became one of the landmarks of the city and the symbol of the French Republic. It was built for the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris. It was inaugurated on February 27, with a mass and the presence of the President of the Republic, Félix Faure.
When you're inside the Eiffel Tower at night, you'll find yourself admiring the fantastic view it offers you. It is amazing to see the skyscrapers look like tiny toys in view from the sky. Besides the Eiffel Tower, the best view from the Room with a View is the view of Sacre Coeur. 7211a4ac4a
