I don’t know much about the Eiffel tower other than the fact it was built for a worlds fair pre World War II, and they told the people they would be tearing it down right after. Not sure if they were lying about that or they realized it was a cool thing after they built it. I heard it was built in the Italian sector of Paris.
Also, that Hitler chose not to destroy any of Paris during WW2, the tower as well obviously.
I also, know nothing about this Mr Eiffel fellow they named it after, nor, did I wikipedia it or read the plaque located about a meter out of frame of this photo.
I am posting this picture because I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who he is.
I noticed that once every 5 minutes someone would stop to look at it. This monument/Statue is located directly under the belly of the tower near the most populated of the four legs of the structure. Yet, no one was there. A thousand people at any given moment, handful to see the man himself. –
Think about it.
