Eiffel Tower

 

3.99

Description

No one could imagine Paris today without its signature spire. But Gustave Eiffel only constructed this graceful tower as a temporary exhibit for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (World Fair). Luckily, the tower’s popularity assured its survival beyond the fair, and its elegant art nouveau webbed-metal design has become the defining fixture of the city’s skyline.
