We frequently see photos of structures like the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty in their completed states, but we rarely get to see photos of monuments, buildings, and historical landmarks as they were being created. Unlike such naturally occurring wonders as Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon, the things on this list are made by humans, so photographs are available of their construction. This list is chock-full of pictures of old buildings, historical monuments, bridges, museums, and more.

Thanks to the invention of the camera, we have plenty of historical photos of landmarks under construction from the last two centuries.
