Perhaps no team epitomized the 1950s like the Brooklyn Dodgers. Now, a new book helps tell the club’s story through some remarkable photographs.
They were a part of baseball’s major leagues for barely 20 seasons, but the Brooklyn Dodgers’ story is one of baseball’s most memorable chapters.
‘Through a Blue Lens’ is a collectionof the Brooklyn Dodgers photographs of Barney Stein, taken between 1937 and 1957, and compiled by Dennis D’Agostino and Bonnie Crosby (Stein’s daughter), with forewords by Carl Erskine and Peter O’Malley.
Published by Triumph Books of Chicago, the book contains 162 pages of the glory years of the Dodgers in Brooklyn with the Boys of Summer and the Flatbush faithful. It was a hit with one writer who grew up with Dem Bums.
