On March 31, 1889, the Eiffel Tower is dedicated in Paris in a ceremony presided over by Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s designer, and attended by French Prime Minister Pierre Tirard, a handful of other dignitaries, and 200 construction workers.
At first, Eiffel’s tower was greeted with skepticism and indignation from many who thought it would be an eyesore in the heart of Paris. Yet, the monument remained and is now a favourite landmark in the city of lights.
