It still amazes me to think that something as universally well-known and famous as the Eiffel Tower was the centerpiece of a World's Fair (or two)!

I'm not one to question Nat Geo's research however . . . the photo which is said to be from 1914 shows all the 1889 or 1900 World's Fair buildings intact. Did they remain in place until 1914? The photo which is claimed to be from July 1936 would place it just months from the opening of the 1937 Arts et Techniques Exhibition so there would have been lots of construction going on in the photo.
