As the statue began to scale toward the sky, designer and builder Gustave Eiffel (yes, that one!) was brought in to help build the scaffolding and trusses to support the statue and further construction.  Here is a view of it about half-completed.  As you'll see in the next photo, it soon began to tower above the Paris landscape.

In the following years, the scaffolding continued to move skyward until the head was added and each arm connected.  Here is a view of the workshop (around 100 feet in the air!) in 1884, just before the statue was completed.
