Caption: Eiffel Tower, Paris. Early photograph, dating from after the completion of the Eiffel Tower (1889), in Paris, France, with a flag at the top of the tower. A balloon is at upper right. This wrought iron tower, 324 metres tall, was built as the entrance arch for the Universal Exposition (World Fair) of 1889 (buildings in background). At the time, it was the tallest structure in the world. In the foreground is the Pont d'Iena, over the River Seine. The photographic printing technique used here was halftone printing, with the resulting print known as a halftone. This technique became successful in the early 1880s. This is one of the first such prints.
