THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photograph by Keystone View Company MAN'S HIGHEST TOWER Like a great steel finger pointing toward heaven, the Eiffel Tower is to be seen from almost every point in Paris: but this view, through the doors of the Trocadero, is most attractive. The height of this structure is just under a thousand feet, and of the several platforms the hignest, where 800 people may gather, is 905 feet above the street. Above this there is a balcony, from which, on a clear clay, one may see more than fifty miles. At the very top is a meteorological observatory and a wireless station.
