Caption

Eiffel Tower radio station. The radio operator is using a headset to listen to a message. In the background are measuring devices and receivers. On the table in the background is equipment related to ship radios. The Eiffel Tower, located in Paris, France, was built between 1887 and 1889, and reaches a height of 300 metres. Proposals to use it as a radio tower were first made in 1901, and a permanent long-distance radio base was established here in 1906. Photograph published in 'La Telegraphie Sans Fil' (Wireless Telegraphy, 1914), by the French geophysicist Alphonse Berget (1860-1934).
