21-Foot-Tall Eiffel Tower

While we couldn't tell what business this Eiffel Tower was next to, it is indeed still there! It is the same tower that was off of South Lamar in Austin in front of French Antique store -- we took pictures of it back in 2007 when it was there!

[Jenny Hofmann, 10/13/2020]

The Tower was previously about 100 yards south, next to a restaurant. When the restaurant changed owners earlier in 2020, the Tower disappeared. Now it's back, just up the road.
