The Gustave Tower

During one of our many trawlings off Paris's beaten track, me and Sarah stumbled across this strange girder-like structure. I took some photos so you at home can witness its unlikely beauty.

Eiffel tower
The monument is apparently
known as the
Gustave Tower, after
its designer Gustave Eiffel

Eiffel gloom
We were particularly pleased we found the tower,
since it is notoriously hard to spot

Eiffel tower
Because of its immense ugliness, few
are interested in visiting the tower.
Hence deserted scenes like these

Visitors - if there are any - who wish to visit the top are hoisted
up by rope (provided)

But how can we get to this Paris place you speak of? Really Will, your idea of 'sightseeing' is far too esoteric for general consumption. Stop being so 'elite'.
