  • The belief many wealthy parents held about taking their children to Europe for educational purposes, as well as to show them the height of culture and sophistication.

  • The Eiffel Tower, which was built for the 1889's World's Fair and was considered as the tallest structure in the world.
  • The Catacombs of Paris, originally built for mining stone and was later converted into an underground burial place in the late 1700s due to the lack of spaces for cemeteries.
  • Political tensions that plagued Europe during the early 1900s, with Great Britain, France and Russia forming an alliance and competing for power again Germany.
