10 Photos Of Iconic Landmarks Before They Were Completed

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial took quite a bit of time to build, thanks to massive amount of marble used, as well as the sheer size of the place. Construction was started in 1914 and was finally finished in 1922.

The Space Needle

This Canadian landmark is another on this list that was built specifically for a World’s Fair. The structure was finished in 1962 but this picture shows the early days of the construction.
