For the next month I will be traveling through many different cities. I thought it would be a good post to pick out some of the city-scapes in my great grandfather's collection. The Eiffel tower was built in 1889. In the following photo the tower would have been younger then 20. When I saw the tower for the first time I was 15. At that time the tower would have been 108. It was almost 90 years between the time my great grandfather visited the Eiffel tower and my first visit.

  1. You know what's awesome? The fact that Europe has so many things around that are still standing after 100+ years. Sometimes even after wars or natural disasters. You're able to see something that your great-grandfather saw. You're able to connect with that history. So often, in North America, we just knock things down and build up a bigger/better/newer building or whatever, rather than preserving the old.
