Vintage Photos of the Arc de Triomphe

START

The Arc de Triomphe was unveiled 183 years ago today to commemorate France’s military strength and national pride. Construction of the arch began in 1806 during Emperor Napoleon’s reign, but it took 30 years and cost over 9 million francs to complete. Since its inauguration on July 29, 1836, the landmark has been a top historical destination in Paris. In honor of the Arc de Triomphe’s anniversary, CR takes a look through the archives of the famous arch.
