The Eiffel Tower in Paris is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

Constructed from 1887–89 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, it was initially criticized by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France. The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world.

The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall and the tallest structure in Paris. This postcard shows the tower in year 1970 and goes to Mannheim in Germany.
