Description

The Eiffel Tower, built for a World's Fair in 1889, has become a permanent symbol of the city of Paris, France. Engineering the Eiffel Tower introduces readers to its designer, Gustave Eiffel, shows how workers assembled the gigantic tower, and looks at how maintenance crews keep it standing today. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index.
