Caption: Eiffel Tower. Illustration of the Eiffel Tower during construction in 1888. The open-lattice tower (centre) was designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923) and erected for the 1889 Paris Exhibition. It cost #260, 000, used 15, 000 wrought-iron sections and 2, 500, 000 rivets and, including its installations, originally weighed 9700 tonnes. Without its modern broadcasting antenna, it stands 312 metres high, and was the world's tallest man-made structure until 1930. During the early 20th century, the tower held laboratories for the study of astonomy, biology, meteorology, atmospheric pollution, as well as radio and television transmitters.
