Mole Antonelliana is 167m and was inagurated in 1888.
Eiffel Tower 330m in 1889.

Maybe I should've been more accurate.
I'm refering to this list: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_d...ude_ihrer_Zeit

("Highest Buildings of its time")

Philadelphia city hall is listed in Skyscrapers there. The Eiffel-Tower is a structure and Mole Antonelliana has just a high roof.


In terms of absolute height of anything made my humans, the Eiffel-Tower of course is No. 1 at that time.

When we speak about Eiffel tower we speak about Paris, so let's see the Paris' City Hall:



It was constructed in 1628.

In Sweden we differ between town hall and city hall.

MALMÖ Town Hall (Rådhus):



MALMÖ City Hall (Stadshus):



One ugly and one beauty!
