The Leaning Tower of Pisa - Now and a hundred years ago

This is a photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa taken in the 1890s.

This photo was taken in 2004, more than a hundred years later. As you can see, the tower is leaning less as a result of the "correction" and stabilization work done between 1990 and 2001. Right now the tower leans about 3,99 degrees. Prior to the restoration work the leaning was 5,5 degrees.
