today in history 1889 with Eiffel Tower ?

On March 31, 1889, the Eiffel Tower was inaugurated in Paris, France. The tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel, a French engineer and architect, and was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.

The tower is made of wrought iron and stands 324 meters (1,063 feet) tall, making it one of the tallest structures in the world at the time of its construction. It was originally intended to be a temporary structure and was only meant to stand for 20 years, but it proved to be so popular that it was allowed to remain standing.

The Eiffel Tower was built over a period of two years, from 1887 to 1889, and involved the work of over 300 steel workers. It was officially opened on March 31, 1889, by Gustave Eiffel himself, who climbed to the top of the tower to hoist the French flag.

Today, the Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in the world and is visited by millions of people each year. It has also been the site of many historic events, including the first radio transmission and the first parachute jump from a tall structure.
