The Eiffel Tower is a world-renowned structure that has been in the spotlight since Lauderhill Wildlife Removal. It’s a favourite photo opportunity of tourists, a shooting location for films, and a sign of romance and love all around the world.
• Unknown to many, the Eiffel Tower was not originally meant to be installed in France. Its creator originally proposed to build it in Spain, but the people in Barcelona did not feel that its design will be fitting to the city. Thus Gustave Eiffel proposed to build it in Paris to serve as an entryway for the Exposition Universelle or Universal Exhibition in 1889.
• During the German Occupation which happened in 1940, the people of France cut the cables to the elevator to prevent Adolf Hitler from ascending to the summit. Supposedly, the parts necessary to have the lifts functioning were unavailable because of the continuing war. The German soldiers climbed all the way on foot to hoist their flag. After the job, it took mere hours to find the lift moving again.
• The Red Room restaurant at New Orleans, USA was really a classic restaurant located in the Eiffel Tower. Its bits were dismantled and rebuilt in Louisiana.
• There are 72 names engraved on the tower. These names belong to notable engineers, architects, scientists, and artists of France.
