WTVR Tower in Richmond Virginia

The construction for the WTVR tower was completed in 1953 and made it (at that point in time) the tallest freestanding radio tower in the USA. Only the Eiffel Tower was a taller lattice-metal tower in the world. The reach of the broadcast from the tower was substantial, and I was told by someone in NW Arkansas that as a kid they could pick up broadcasts.
