This interesting pictorial representation shows 78 of the man-made tall buildings of the late 19th century side by side.  Most are places of worship, but the Washington Monument is the tallest one shown.  In upper right, the Eiffel Tower, opened in 1889, is added for comparison. From Cram's Unrivaled Family Atlas of the World.
