Hall of fame

The ‘Hall of Fame’, in the back of the Eperon d’Or museum, salutes the people who made Izegem great with their hard work. The gallery is an interactive collection of data, photographs, anecdotes and images and sound fragments of people who have worked in the industries of Izegem. The shoe and brush industries represent the biggest bite of the gallery, of course, but other sectors are also present.

The Hall of Fame is never ‘finished’. The project continues to grow. We’re always looking for more stories and images. Did you work in the shoe industry yourself? Or does your uncle or neighbour know how to tell juicy anecdotes? Have you found nostalgic photos of your grandfather in the attic? Give us a call at eperondor@izegem.be. This way, you can contribute to the Eperon d’Or Hall of Fame.
