Originally intended as a temporary exhibit, the Eiffel Tower was almost torn down and scrapped in 1909. City officials opted to save it after recognizing its value as a radiotelegraph station. Several years later, during World War I, the Eiffel Tower intercepted enemy radio communications and was used to dispatch emergency troop reinforcements. It escaped destruction a second time during World War II - Hitler initially ordered the demolition of the city’s most cherished symbol, but the command was never carried out. Also during the German occupation of Paris, French resistance fighters famously cut the Eiffel Tower’s elevator cables so that the Nazis had to climb the stairs. We all know Eiffel Tower for it beauty but over the years, the Eiffel Tower has been the site of numerous high-profile stunts, ceremonial events and even scientific experiments. Celebrate this unseen side of the most iconic feature of Paris Skyline with this capture!
