Publisher's Note
"In much the same way as the novel 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' re-creates the borough at the beginning of the century, 'When Brooklyn Was the World' brings Brooklyn's halcyon days to life. The book captures a wealth of information about the Dodgers, the Brooklyn accent, Coney Island, and everything else that makes it special. More than 150 black-and-white photographs.
With a brilliant, entertaining text and hundreds of exciting, nostalgic photographs, 'When Brooklyn Was the World' recovers the history of this lively city, as remembered by the millions of people who knew Brooklyn in its golden era."

A lovely copy of an increasingly uncommon title.    [Book ID # 1980]
