little Eiffel

Today marks the Eiffel Tower's 120th birthday! The Paris monument was inaugurated on May 19, 1889. Alexandre Gustave Eiffel (December 15, 1832 - December 27, 1923) was a French structural engineer and architect. He designed the Eiffel Tower (built 1887-1889) for the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, France, and the armature for the Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor.
