The Eiffel Tower in 1900

Eiffel tower.

In 1900, when the Eiffel Tower celebrated its 11th anniversary, it was no longer really a novelty. But the World's Fair held in Paris that year provided the perfect opportunity to modernise the monument, and make it the City of Light’s main attraction once again.

Opened on 14 April 1900 by French President Emile Loubet, the 1900 World's Fair spread over 216 hectares and welcomed more than 50 million visitors over 212 days.

The Fair bequeathed several buildings to Paris, the most iconic undoubtedly being the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais.

The 1900 World's Fair was an opportunity to revitalise the Eiffel Tower's declining appeal.

Projet de Stephen Sauvestre d'aménagement de la Tour Eiffel pour l'exposition de 1900 - Collection tour Eiffel by Collection tour Eiffel - SETE Eiffel Tower

Several plans for modifying the monument were suggested. One of the more daring was put forward by Stephen Sauvestre, an architect who had taken part in building the Tower.

His idea was to add two lateral towers to the monument, so that extra elevators to the second floor could be installed.

Although none of the plans devised for the World's Fair came to anything, the Eiffel Tower still underwent numerous improvements. The Tower notably capitalised on the period's technological advances to move into the modern era.

On the first floor, the internal passageway was widened by pushing back the building façades, which took on a brighter, more cheerful look. Four restaurants (Russian French, English and Dutch) were set up.  

The second floor platform was enlarged with an external gallery.

The 1900 World's Fair also marked the advent of 'the magic of electricity'.

The 10,000 gas lamps providing light up till then were replaced by 5,000 electric light bulbs.

But the greatest modernisation work carried out on the monument involved the complete overhaul of the elevators servicing the Eiffel Tower's first and second floors.

In June 1889, five hydraulic elevators were installed for the use of visitors. 

They were a formidable feat of technical engineering for the period, as never before had engineers tackled such heights, or such loads. From the time they were brought into service, these elevators enabled hundreds of thousands of visitors to safely ascend to a great height and gaze out over the entire city of Paris.

But as they were based on a technology still in its infancy, Gustave Eiffel modernised the elevators for the 1900 World's Fair.

The Roux-Combaluzier elevators were replaced by two hydraulic press elevators built by Fives-Lille. Each consisted of two cabins with a 50-person capacity.

The elevators, vital components of the monument, were put under severe strain. Their annual journeys combined equalled two and half trips around the world – more than 103,000 kilometres. 

Today, a testament to the extraordinary technical engineering of the period, two of the elevators are still operating with the hydraulic technology of 1900, in the Eiffel Tower's East and West Pillars.

Eiffel Tower by S. Hollis Clayson LAST REVIEWED: 22 February 2023 LAST MODIFIED: 26 February 2020 DOI: 10.1093/obo/9780190922467-0014

The literature on the Eiffel Tower is wide-ranging and multidisciplinary, echoing the character and history of the 300-meter iron structure itself: a singular and controversial monument with both a past and a present. Not meant to last beyond a few decades, the Tower still looms over Paris. It was the tallest structure on earth when constructed on the Champ de Mars in the French capital as the centerpiece of the 1889 Exposition Universelle, which marked the hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution. Reviled at first, it is revered today. During the post-WWII decades, it became the central icon and symbol of Paris and eventually of France tout court, and is today one of the most widely recognized and visited attractions in the world. The Tower was made a Monument historique in 1964 and named part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site (“Paris, Banks of the Seine”) in 1991. The publications enumerated and glossed in what follows align with the Tower’s complexity: they are drawn from art, architectural, cultural, economic, political, social, and technology history as well as biography and semiology.

This section contains the first and most influential writings on the Eiffel Tower, including the writings of the engineer Gustave Eiffel himself and by the science popularizer Gaston Tissandier. Early first-hand accounts of the experience of ascending the Tower, those by Eugène Raboul and E. M. de Vogüé, are also included, as are the published encomia of an insider who loved the iron structure, Max de Nansouty. The only 20th-century authors included are those whose texts comment on primary materials: 1) the indispensable historian of the Eiffel Tower, Bertrand Lemoine, who prefaced the reprint of one of Eiffel’s enormous 1900 volumes, and 2) Amélie Granet, the compiler of the 1989 guide to the fonds Eiffel , the archive at the Musée d’Orsay.

Eiffel, Gustave. La Tour de Trois Cents Mètres: Texte . Paris: Société des Imprimeries Lemercier, 1900a.

Eiffel’s highly technical eight-part account is almost 400 pages long. It details the planning and building of the structure. Questions of its cost and its potential for scientific utility (e.g., in the realm of meteorology) are also considered in detail. It was published on 1 June 1900 in a limited edition of 500 copies on wove paper, just at the moment of the Tower’s second starring role in an Exposition Universelle.

Eiffel, Gustave. La Tour de Trois Cents Mètres: Planches . Paris: Société des Imprimeries Lemercier, 1900b.

Complete reprint of the large-scale volume, with introductory text (in four languages) by Bertrand Lemoine.

Granet, Amélie. Musée d’Orsay: Catalogue sommaire illustré du fonds Eiffel . Paris: Éditions de la Réunion des Musées Nationaux, 1989.

This is the essential guide to the rich archival corpus that is a fundamental point of departure for Eiffel Tower research. Granet’s volume lists and categorizes the hundreds of documents, letters, published materials, art works, and other objects given to the Musée d’Orsay by the Eiffel family in 1981. The materials are accessible at the Orsay to researchers by appointment.

Lemoine, Bertrand. “Gustave Eiffel’s Three-Hundred-Metre Tower: An Accomplishment.” In The Eiffel Tower . By Bertrand Lemoine, 7–11. Cologne: Taschen, 2016.

The fifty-three double-page spreads illustrate every detail of the complicated prefabricated iron structure by bringing together the 4,300 or so original plans that guided the building of the Tower and its interior layout. Lemoine’s essay provides an overview of the two-volume publication and Eiffel’s ostensible motives for preparing it, followed by five helpful thematic narratives: Mr. Eiffel’s Tower, The Artists’ Protest, The Construction of the Tower, Public Success, and The Scientist.

Nansouty, Max de. La Tour Eiffel de 300 mètres à l’Exposition Universelle de 1889: Historique et description . Paris: Bernard Tiguol Ed., 1889.

A forceful endorsement of every aspect of the Tower, which Nansouty calls “progress materialized.” The author was a member of the Press Committee of the Exposition of 1889.

Reboul, Eugène. Souvenir de mon ascension à la Tour Eiffel . Paris: L. Warner, 1889.

This is a first-person account of a journey up into the Tower by an enthusiast utterly besotted by the new structure. His exciting ascension is absent fatigue, shaking, vertigo, and danger. He was especially specific about and intoxicated by the Tower’s lighting. He admires its aesthetics as well (p. 28): “No-one will contradict us if we affirm that there is more merit, and more art, in the 300-metre tower than in 9/10 of the works on exhibit in the Salon.”

Tissandier, Gaston. La Tour Eiffel de trois cents mètres . Paris: G. Masson, 1889.

Tissandier, an influential science journalist and editor of La Nature , covers Eiffel’s biography and the origin of the Tower briefly before shifting to highly technical topics: foundations, hydraulic presses, ironwork, scaffolding and cranes, staircases and elevators, and the campanile and lighthouse. The final section, “What is the Use of the Eiffel Tower?,” emphasizes its contribution to constructive ironwork, the service it will render to strategy in wartime, telegraphic communication, meteorology, astronomy, urban illumination, and the enlargement of human horizons. Translated into English by Gaston Tissandier as The Eiffel Tower: A Description of the Monument, Its Construction, Its Machinery, Its Object and Its Utility (London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1889).

Vogüé, E. M. de. Remarques sur l’Exposition du Centenaire . Paris: E. Plon, Norrit et Cie., 1889.

The Vicomte de Vogüé, man of letters, diplomat, and Orientalist, wrote an admiring account of the choice and launch of Eiffel’s Tower, which included the first great account of the panoramic view from the 300-meter Tower at night. His description of the intensity and restlessness of the Tower’s own illuminations is unparalleled in period literature.

Pate Duncan

Review by Pate Duncan ★★★★½

One of those films to watch when in need of a visual reset. I’m promiscuously consuming a wide net of media that recently contains more sludge than art. The sludge has its merits; I’m no longer advancing a purist dogma about film because it’s unsustainable, alienating to anyone who isn’t already a converted cinephile, and isn’t a theoretically defensible position because it’s predicated on an ontological stability or uniqueness of “cinema” as a concept that’s increasingly untenable in an era of proliferated moving images.

That being said, this has an artful simplicity and clarity unlike anything we can see today. Even though film penetrated into quotidian life quite thoroughly in the time of Lumière actualities, it still feels special that…

Christopher Small

Review by Christopher Small

First film I saw at Il Cinema Ritrovato was this beautiful one minute short that documents a 1898 ride up the inside of the Eiffel Tower. We peer down at ant-like carriages and masses of dark specks shuffling around far below, while in the foreground the bulky iron girders of the tower’s legs glide by and slice our view to pieces. Also screened with a fragment from a lost Allan Dwan film with Douglas Fairbanks and a stunning hand-painted colour film of tulips blossoming.

Luke

Review by Luke

Amazingly done -- the obstructions of slow-moving iron lattice over a pedestrian city view is strange and beautiful.

And, I'm finding more and more often with these early films that those that aren't perfectly shot -- i.e. with unintended objects or disturbances left in frame -- have a more immediate quality to them. It's not the pristine, cleaned-up past, it's just life, as it was.

Nick R

Review by Nick R

The circumstances of mounting the cinematographe on the elevator leave the camera askance, the framing by the unkown operator uncharacteristically casual. And there's the frayed negative, its fibers breaking the frame to the left.

These odd details, and the central presence of a now-vanished palace, make this more than generic tourist imagery; you could even say they give it a proto-Vertov-ian touch.

loureviews

Review by loureviews ★★½

This must have been quite stunning when it was first shared with people who may have only seen the Eiffel Tower in photographs, if at all.

The film is from the perspective of someone going up inside the Tower, looking down to what's happening below, in the grounds of a house, people milling around.

Interesting to note that although the cameraman is clearly ascending the Tower the people below do not get much smaller after a certain point. Moving images can play tricks.

hard to say anything more eloquently than Mr. Duncan did, but this film truly achieves more in 45 seconds than others do in hours upon hours of unnecessary filth.

The narrowest part of the river is the Kremlin area in the city center, and the most extensive is around the Luzhniki Stadium in the south. 

Bridges in Moscow

Undoubtedly, bridges and embankments are among the most scenic spots and main attractions of Moscow. Plus, they are so romantic.

  • Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge –  Great Stone Bridge –  is the main bridge of Moscow . The first stone bridge was constructed here in the 17th century.
  • Patriarshy Bridge  is one of the youngest pedestrian bridges, built in 2004. The bridge connects the iconic Christ the Saviour Cathedral with funky Bersenevskaya embankment, extremely popular place among locals for its trendy art galleries, cafes and panoramic views. Patriarshy Bridge used to be a shooting location for ex-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's New Year speech to the nation.
  • Borodinsky Bridge,  erected in honor of the 100th anniversary of the glorious victory in the Battle of Borodino (which every Russian kid knows about), a fierce legendary battle during the Russo-French war of 1812.
  • Bagration Bridge  one of the  pedestrian bridges with most picturesque views of the Moskva River with its numerous upper-level observation platforms. The bridge was erected to celebrate the 850th anniversary of Moscow city in 1997.
  • Krymsky Bridge  used to be in Top 5 Europe’s longest bridges some 100 years ago. The bridge got its name after the ancient Krymsky ford which Crimean Tartars used to invade Moscow in the 16 th  century.

Embankments of Moscow

Moscow river boats 37 embankments, the most popular being Kremlevskaya, Sofiyskaya, Pushkinskaya, Vorobyovskaya and Kolomenskaya.

You can get the most spectacular views of the Kremlin from  Kremlevskaya and Sofiyskaya embankments.

  • Pushkinkaya embankment  is the most romantic in Moscow. It meanders along Gorky Park and Neskuchnyi garden and is rich for all kinds of entertainment as well as cozy nooks, including Olivkovy beach, the famous Zeleny theater as well as a pier for river cruisers.
  • Vorobyevskaya embankment  is part of Sparrow Hills nature reserve. This place opens a beautiful panorama of the river and city from the observation deck and is considered to be the place for taking serious decisions in life.
  • Embankment in Kolomenskoye  Museum-Reserve has a special charm due to its peculiar geographical relief. The boat trip around Kolomenskoye would be the most peaceful in your life.
  • Taras Shevchenko embankment  is popular among photographers for its modern Moscow City skyscrapers. Highly recommended for your night boat trip.
  • Embankments of Moscow are the pride of the capital. A distinctive feature of each of the promenades is its architecture and beautiful views. In addition, almost all the embankments of Moscow have a rich history and a lot of notable buildings.

Different epochs

Taking a walk along the Moskva River by boat, you will witness the architecture of Moscow from different eras and styles. Archaeological studies indicate that already in the XI century there stood a fortified settlement on Borovitsky hill, which is now called the Kremlin. Little fortress could not accommodate all the residents of the rapidly growing city, and the Grand Duke ordered the construction of a new Kremlin, larger than the former.

Boat trip around Kolomenskoe Park

Moscow river boat trip starts from the pier Klenovy (Maple) Boulevard and provides reat views of Nicholas Perervinsky monastery.

Nicholas Perervinsky monastery was founded at the time of the Battle of Kulikov (1380). The monastery, got its name from the surrounding area – “Pererva”, which can be translated like “tear off” and because of the location –  here it abruptly changed its course, turning to Kolomna, standing on the opposite bank.

Nowadays Kolomenskoye is State Art, Historical, Architectural and Natural Landscape Museum-Reserve, which doors are open to everyone who wants to get in touch with the ancient history of Russia.

Take a break from the big city hustle in the shady parks and gardens of the Kolomenskoe Museum-Reserve. Don’t miss a wonderful Church of the Ascension and Tsar Alexey’s Palace in Kolomenskoye!

Monasteries and temples

  • Novospassky Monastery
  • Founded in the 13th century on the site where now is located the Danilovsky monastery. After a few decades, in 1330, Ivan Kalita moved the monastery onto the Borovitskii hill of the Kremlin. However, in the 15th century, Spassky Monastery again moved, this time to a more spacious place on Krasnoholmskaya waterfront.
  • Church of St. Nicholas in Zayaitskom
  • Erected in the middle of the XVIII century in baroque style. The building survived after the 1812 fire, but the utensils were destoyed. Parishioners collected donations and restored the temple on their own. In Soviet times, it was closed and re-opened only in 1992.
  • Cathedral of Christ the Savior
  • The church was originally erected in honor of the victory over Napoleon and was being under construction for long 44 years. Notoriously demolished in 1937 to be a giant swimming pool under open sky. The current building was constructed in 1990s. It is the tallest and one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world.
  • The temple was built in 1679-82, during the reign of Tsar Fedor Alekseevich, in late Muscovite Baroque style and can be characterized as bonfire temple. Each gable is a symbol of a heavenly fire.
  • Novodevichy Convent
  • The most famous concent and monastery in Moscow, presumably founded in 1524. Novodevichy’s status has always been high among other monasteries, it was in this monastery where the women of the royal blood, the wives of Tsars and local rulers of Moscow were kept in prison as nuns.
  • St. Andrew’s church  (male acts as Compound Patriarch of Moscow)
  • St. Andrew’s church stands right on the slopes of the Sparrow Hills, on the way down to the Moskva River, on the territory of the Nature Reserve “Sparrow Hills”. The monastery is small in size but is very cozy. It’s situated in a quiet courtyard surrounded by temples, fruit trees and flowers.

    Comments. This medal, executed by the engraver Charles Trotin, was probably given as a souvenir to visitors who had paid to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower, built under the direction of the engineer Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923), for the 1889 World's Fair. It comes from Gustave Eiffel's Parisian metallurgical factory in Levallois-Perret.
