We see monuments, buildings, and historical landmarks as some of the most recognizable things in the world. Unlike naturally occurring wonders like Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon, the things on this list are all man made, which means all of them have photographs of their construction. This list is chock full of pictures of old buildings being built.
But there's more than just buildings. Keep reading to see photos of historical monuments being built - also bridges, museums, and more. We frequently see images of things like the Eiffel Tower and the statue of liberty in their completed states, but we rarely get to see photos of them as they were being created.
Thanks to the invention of the camera, we have plenty of historical photos of construction from the last two centuries. So check out photos of all these monuments under construction and remember to vote up your favorites!
