Finished in 1889, 2.5 Million Rivets Later

Almost as old as our university, the Eiffel Tower was a marvel of engineering, standing tall with its 2.5 million rivets.

You can find pictures of it anywhere, but I thought these photos depicting its being built were fun, one man's vision taking shape to become the first thing we envision if we've never visited Paris.

I'll comment here a week from now on what the new vision is. Posted by Picasa

Hi. I saw your name on my blogsite and thought I return the hello :) The language I write in is Icelandic. I come from Iceland, but am currently staying in Denmark. Commenting on the Eiffel Tower...from here I could just take a train to see it, but I have not. Funny how you think that things are going too wait for just might collapse tomorrow!
