The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, near the Palais du Tocadero. Numerous courtyards and pools are in the foreground, with pedestrians and horse-drawn carriages milling about. Two structures with matching domes can be seen in the background, and a third building can be seen just behind the Tower’s lower arch. The Tower was originally constructed to serve as the entryway for the 1889 Exposition Universelle, a World’s Fair celebrating the one-hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution. It has since become a symbol of Paris, (1898).
