Did you know?

Did you know that the Eiffel Tower was designed as a temporary building? It was originally planned that it would be dismantled after 20 years, but the Paris authorities changed their minds and let it remain standing. Though loved today, it wasn’t universally popular when first built. There was a campaign against its construction, led by some of the most prominent Parisians of the time. One of these men, Guy de Maupassant, a famous writer, is supposed to have often had his lunch in the tower’s restaurant as he said it was the only place in the city where he didn’t have to look at the building he hated. We think it’s safe to say that these protesters were on the wrong side of history.
