Happy birthday Tour d'Eiffel

The French call her La dame de fer -- the iron lady.  Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the tower took two years to build.  And today just happens to be her birthday!  Here are a couple photos by one of my favorite photographers, Robert Doisneau, in honor of the 123rd anniversary of the opening of the Eiffel Tower.
