View of model for the 1937 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne.
This is an interesting image, because it somehow puts the Eiffel tower in its original visual context, even though it originated from the 1889 Exposition Universelle. And if you see a modern day film, like maybe an American romantic comedy, you’re just bound to see a few shots of the Eiffel tower as the perfect backdrop. With this in mind, it’s fascinating to see the tower as something that it once was, a beacon of modern life, and not really something to be accompanied with an accordéon.
