Great Tower for London
In 1889, inspired by the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, Sir Edward Watkin (a British Member of Parliament and chairman of the Metropolitan Railway) proposed the construction of a taller tower in Wembley Park, London. An architectural competition was held in 1890, and numerous designs were submitted (Wikipedia). The numbers attached to the designs are consecutive, and simply indicate the order in which they were examined by the Judges, without any reference to their respective merits. Number 37 won.
