This image shows the iconic Eiffel Tower, located in Paris, France. When originally constructed, it was considered to be an eyesore, presumably because of it’s industrial style construction, but has since become the symbol of Paris more than any other object.
The description states simply:
PARIS… en flanant
10 La Tour Eiffel
–There are elevators to take visitors up to the second level above ground, but beyond that ascending requires climbing a prodigious amount of stairs. At the summit all of central Paris is easily visible on a clear day.
This image likely dates from the 1930s.
