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.
