|::|Historic Snapshot France began the 19th century with a strong leader. Fifteen years
after the storm of the Bastille at the beginning of the French revolution
(1789-1799) the First Empire was proclaimed in 1804 with Napoleon Bounaparte
as the person who dominated France. During the Restauration (1814 - 30) and
the July Monarchy (1830 - 48) the industrialization process established gas
lightning, omnibus service and Paris' first railway. Baron Hussman renewed
the look of Paris throughoutly and became known as "the creator of modern
Paris" (* Britannica.com). His Projects continued under the Third Republic
and involved many international exhibitions and important monuments like the
Eifel Tower (1889).
