Room 1: Jules Deloffre
A grey "Pavé du Nord", what's more natural to evoke the "catésien" cyclist of Paris-Roubaix and the Tour de France who was Jules Deloffre?
Born in 1885, his whole life was dedicated to "the little queen": he participated in many prestigious races and promoted it in his store located on the square formerly called "Green Square" and today, Place du 3 septembre 1944.
