Mr Degoux in Swalem

Vintage photograph of Mr Degoux in the doorway of his farmhouse

It is said this photograph shows Jean-Baptiste Degoux in front of the farmhouse where he spent some years of his younger life.
If this is right, it should be dated around 1890. The region was the former ' Swalem ', Flanders, which has now disappeared, one way or another.

The name of the village is still unclear.

Mr Degoux seems to be working hard on a weather forecast, which was one of his minor qualities.
