TOWER & STATUE OF LIBERTY
Perhaps the two most recognizable monumental symbols
in the world are The Statue of Liberty and The Eiffel Tower.
The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 and was the tallest
man made structure in the world at that time. At one time, the people of France thought that the
Eiffel Tower should be taken down after the World's Fair.
The people of France gave the people of the United States
the gift of The Statue of Liberty. The artist for the project was
Frederic Auguste Bartholdi. It was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
Gustave Eiffel was truly a busy man.
