Audio Preview

The “Eiffel” Bridge

Right. Back to Eiffel. This bridge has been called “de l’Eiffel” because of the company that built it. In 1876, the local government published an auction for a new bridge. Three companies beavered away before finally presenting their proposals. But only one company submitted a winning project – the company of Gustave Eiffel. Eiffel won by presenting a budget of 19.750 pesetas. Must have been seen to be good value at the time. And it probably was. Despite some repairs and a bit of re-painting, the bridge has endured until today. I’d say those pesetas were money well spent – wouldn’t you?
