Atlas Obscura Travel Challenge: Eiffel Tower

In case you don’t remember, or maybe you missed that particular post, I set a new travel challenge for myself. It’s based off a series of in-progress images that Atlas Obscura wrote about a few months ago.

Paris | Eiffel Tower

A photograph by Louis-Émile Durandelle of the construction of the Eiffel Tower, taken in January 1888. In this photo, the tower is reaching its first level; it was completed on March 31, 1889.

Max and I went to Paris many moons ago. So many moons, in fact, that we were still printing up photos back then. And looky here at what I found.
