Eiffel Tower blueprints

Probably better described as yellowprints these “blueprints” are reproductions (presumably far better looking ones) of the original documents used to build the Eiffel Tower found in a book from 1900.

I never really wanted to be an architect, one of the only things I haven’t dreamed of being, until I saw these.
