Trying to Photograph The Eiffel Tower

This is a vintage postcard that is so iconic that you immediately know you are looking at the base of the Eiffel Tower. They must have done some very "old school" retouching. There are very few people here and that statue looks cartoonish. Digital editing options were not available to this photographer. So how was this done? Perhaps, this photo is an actual shot of the base of the tower with a little extra tinting.

I have tried to take an interesting photo of the base of the tower.

No such luck. There are always hundreds of people in the way.
