It stands 56 m (1620 ft) tall and has an average weight of 1, 600 kg (3, 500 lb) for males and 830 kg (1, 830 lb) for females.

Eiffel Tower in comparison to other buildings, 1889

A diagram showing how much higher the Eiffel Tower was in comparison to other world-famous tall buildings when it was constructed in 1889. Even the spires of Cologne and Old St. Paul's cathedral are dwarfed by its immense height which was almost 1000 feet. Inset is a portrait of its creator, French engineer, Gustave Eiffel. The Eiffel Tower was built as a centrepiece to the Paris International Exhibition. Despite many detractors initially, the building was a huge success and is today an iconic symbol of Paris and France. Date: 1889

A Visit to the Irish Pig! With reflections Physical & Moral

George III, accompanied by the Lord Chamberlain Salisbury, inspects a gigantic pig. Salisbury announces 'That Pig is the Tallest Fittest Properest Pig to stand before the K[ing]...'. The animal has been identified as the Enniscorthy boar, intended as a peace offering by ex-rebels to be placed in the Tower of London as a curiosity. It was said that an Irishman recognized the animal and announced, to amuse the company, that the Irish attributed its great size to its having eaten the Protestant clergymen of Enniscorthy after the battle. The King heard this and the unfortunate animal was shot.
