ANDRE CITROËN

Engineer

Between André Citroën and Deauville has developed a special history. His presence in the station was noted in 1912. At the end of the 1920s, having become the first automobile manufacturer in Europe, André Citroën stayed regularly in Deauville, where he rented the villa "Les Abeilles" for his family. On the boards, at the casino or at the racetrack, he was on all outings. At the same time, on August 1, 1926, he opened a 2 m000 store, located behind the casino (currently the Cinéma Morny Club), presenting some twenty models on display, while on the beach, “Citroënettes” races. , small 2CV convertibles with pedals, were organized, and Citroën ‐ Kégresse autochenilles transported swimmers and walkers.
