The surprising history of the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889 for the French World Fair. It was originally supposed to only stand for 20 years but its usefulness as a communication aid during World War I meant it still stands today. When it was built Parisian residents described it as ugly but now the Tower is a must on every tourist's checklist and its instantly recognizable structure makes it the perfect subject for a poster.
