Eiffel Tower / Tour Eiffel
The Eiifel Tower is a Telecom and Obersvation Tower
and a universal symbol for
technology and for France.
It was built as an entrance gate for the 1889
Paris World's fair / Expo Universelle.
The Tower was very much critised during it's construction.
Since it's first opening 300 million people have been inside the 324 tower.
Gustave Eiffel (1832 - 1923) is the engenier and the architect of the tower.
The construction took two years 1887
which was the time when the first White Pages and Yellow Pages were published on paper.
There is also a cultural link between Whitepages.fr
and the Eiffel Tower,
the tower replacing the letter "i" of the word "white"
letter "a" of the world "pages".
The idea of the logo came up running into Roseline Granet
an artist and the wife of the grandson of Gustave Eiffel walking her dog in the evening.
The video artist
has helped to create the logo.
