Another great photo set from Retronaut, this time of the construction of the Eiffel Tower. While now one of the most iconic images of the modern world, it was not beloved by all Parisians. Guy de Maupassant was said to have so loathed it that he ate lunch in the restaurant underneath it each day as it was the only place in the city where he could do so without having to look at it.
