Jean-Baptiste Degoux and the masses

After the dramatic bankruptcy of the ' Frères Degoux Dolmens et Menhirs ', things did not work out as they should have done for Jean-Baptiste Degoux.
The Society wants to be honest on this.

Every time he had to leave the house, be it only to get a loaf of bread, the masses gathered on the streets to catch a glimpse of his miserable person.

But everyone knowing the real Degoux-spirit realizes this situation only tempted him to make new plans for the future.

It was in this period Jean-Baptiste Degoux decided to leave the town of Ghent and move to the south of Belgium, to start a new business.
