  • Description

    A Television tower which, the builders claim, will be the tallest in the world is gradually rising on top of a downtown hill in Tokyo. The gigantic steel structure will rise to 350 metres, which is taller than Paris's Eiffel Tower. The estimated cost of the tower is around five and a half million dollars; it will contain enough steel to build an 8,000 ton ship! T.V. antennae for six stations will be erected on top of the tower and lower down, fire department, telephone and radio aerials will be fixed. The completion of the tower will bring television service to 4, 300,000 households within a radius of 100 kilo metres. Also, an observation tower for visitors will be erected about 250 feet up the tower.
