The Eiffel Tower

Vive la France and vive this 11 x 17 inch print on 100lb paper! Comes with this description: 

Finished in 1889, the magnificent Tour Eiffel was the centerpiece of the 1889 World’s Fair. It’s now hard to believe that the beloved landmark was initially a source of great controversy; artists feared it would demean the skyline while scientists worried that the great metallic structure would act as a magnet, literally ripping nails out of buildings. Ironically it did become a beacon for the Serpent of the Seine, who terrorized the tower on an almost daily basis in the early 20th century.
