Les 125 ans de la Tour Eiffel

Quote:
IN PICTURES - Born on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1889, the most famous tower in the world celebrates its birthday on March 31 . Back to the highlight of this mythical édifice who has seen it all , and its incredible construction.

On Monday, the venerable Iron Lady will celebrate its 125th anniversary . Designed by Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923) , the Eiffel Tower has become the pride of Paris has seen it all : clouds of pollution that covers the days when the alert threshold for fine particles is maximal, the arrival of Tour de France , through the 7 million tourists who visit each year.

Who knew the British royal family to be part of its first guests , not to mention Buffalo Bill , the famous buffalo hunter , visiting Paris with his circus ? Fourth most visited site in France , the symbol of France from a height of 324 meters also saw all colors : first red, then yellow , blue and finally brown bronze , as at present .

Its construction is also entered in the legend. The first metal parts of the Eiffel Tower were raised on 1 July 1887 to provide that human technology was more impressive. March 31, 1889 are 21 months and 7300 tons of iron later born one of the most prestigious and famous monuments in the world. Record speed if we consider the rudimentary tools of the time. The project required the work of 50 designers and engineers , 150 workers in the factory in Levallois -Perret ( where the pieces were prepared ) and between 150 and 300 workers on site . Since its inception, nearly 250 million visitors from all over the world to discover .

Originally scheduled to last only twenty years

Emblematic work of Paris , the tower 324 meters bordering the Seine must of course his name to the contractor assumed , only the risk of its implementation , Gustave Eiffel . Originally scheduled to last only twenty years , she was saved by scientific experiments of its creator. The latter favored the first X-ray transmission and telecommunications : radio tower signals to the Pantheon in 1898 , military radio station in 1903 , the first public radio in 1925, then to the TNT television recently. "Over the decades , the Eiffel Tower has known exploits , extraordinary illuminations , prestigious visitors. Mythical site , bold, she has always inspired artists, the challenges, " reads the official website dedicated to him .

This is not the final results of local elections, but the first results give Anne Hidalgo winner for the parisian mayor's seat.



Welcome Anne and good luck ! (it will be hard with all those "branquignol"...)

Rendez-vous in 2016 to see who will seat the Métropole de Paris.
I hope Hidalgo is the last mayor of that little tiny Paris of 2 millions inhabitants.

Wow, everybody on here knows the view count has been fixed to be always 30,000 ahead of London.

Very sad and hollow celebration indeed.

There clearly hasn't been 2,000,000 views, there are half the posts compared to London.

It is a bit sad really.

Who cares about quantity when you have such quality ?

Simply means that Paris is more interesting than ... eww ... can't even remember its name

Bit sad, really.

Who cares about quantity? It isn't me celebrating the view count!

Fixing the view count dosnt mean Paris is more interesting, quite the opposite.

So basically, you insult me by calling me a troll, when clearly I am not, and then quickly change the subject! All I did was to point out something that everybody knows is the truth, that the Paris view count is fixed to be always 30,000 more than London.

You have quite a nerve insulting me and them insisting the topic of the conversation is changed immediately.

I believe at the very least I deserve an apology.
