Did you know the Eiffel Tower was only temporary? 😱
One of the most iconic structures in the world was only approved by the city officials of Paris to remain standing on the site for 20 years or until 1909. It was almost scrapped until the city decided to save it utilizing it’s height as a radiotelegraph station, most notably in World War I.
Built for the World’s Fair the Eiffel Tower was to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the French Revolution.
After 2 years of construction the Eiffel Tower was completed in March of 1889 standing at a staggering 1,000 feet. The tallest structure in the world in it’s day until 1930. Today the Eiffel Tower holds the record for the most visited paid attraction in the world.

From a 1904 book I received on the St. Louis World's Fair. A view of a portion of the Reproduction of the Holy City, with a glimpse of the Observation Wheel and the Palace of Machinery.
Upon 13-acres, builders reproduced the Jaffa Gate, David Court, the Mosque of Omar and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The exhibition also included The Wailing Wall, the diorama of the Mount of Olives, The Garden of Gethsemane, Valley of Kedron, the Dead Sea, the spot of Ascension, the Via Dolorosa in the barracks where Christ was tried, all among the natural cedar trees of the area.
6 Dark Places (The Ongoing Adventures of Meely Dunbar). At first I tried to put it out of mind. Then I figured if John showed up, I'd just explain that it was all a silly mixup in names. He couldn't mean that about pain and punishment could he? He'd understand, wouldn't he?

For the 1964 World's Fair, sited in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, artist Andy Warhol sparked controversy with his work "13 Most Wanted," a massive grid of enlarged silk-screened mug shots from the New York City Police Department’s 13 most wanted criminals of 1962. Each image was tiled together creating a large tableau of men looking over the grounds. The subversively homoerotic content – with the double entendre of “wanted” – was installed on April 15, 1964 and soon raised objections at the highest level. Learn more via link in bio.⠀
