Eiffel Tower history

The bold and unusual design caused considerable controversy. Many Frenchmen were vocal in their disapproval, including the famous: Charles Garnier, architect of the Opera; Gounod, composer; and writers Francois Coppee, Leconte de Lisle, Dumas the Younger, Maupassant. Others, Apollinaire, Cocteau, Pissarro, Dufy, Utrillo, Seurat, Marquet were strongly in favor. It was nearly torn down in 1909, but it's use for French radio telegraphy saved it. In 1916 it became the terminal for the first radio telephone service across the Atlantic. A meteorological station, radio communications station (1918), television transmission antenna (1957) and a suite of rooms used by Eiffel are located near the top.
