Google Doodle: When did the Eiffel Tower open to the public?




The internet giant has devised one of its iconic illustrations to commemorate the day the iconic structure was first visited by hoi polloi of Paris




Google has created a doodle to commemorate the opening of the Eiffel Tower.
The internet giant has devised one of its iconic illustrations to commemorate the the day the iconic structure was first visited by hoi polloi of Paris on March 31, 1889.
The doodle features a crew of cheery Gallic workmen busying themselves among the wrought iron girders high above the City of Light.
One of the tradesmen has a full beard while another sports an impressively bushy handlebar moustache.
Another can be seen with the ubiquitous beret perched atop his head while a colleague applies paint to the structure while wearing a functional par of dungarees.
The men are working a great distance above the ground but don't seem in the least bit perturbed - presumably dismissing the danger with a typical Gallic shrug.
The 1,063 ft tall tower was constructed in early 1889 as the entrance arch to that year's World's Fair.
It is the tallest structure in Paris and it received its 250 millionth visitor in 2010.
