Brooklyn was in the background of old movies and radio shows. "Newstalgia" - picture magazine by Bob Richmond. Brooklyn WAS the Dodgers. Most people don't know how the name Dodgers came to be. Brooklyn was a city of trolley cars criss crossing the town and to get to the ball park people were constantly dodging the trolleys and became known as the trolley dodges. How Brooklyn got its name - Breuckelem, then Brookland, and finally Brooklyn. Shep discusses the history of Brooklyn and the surrounding area referring to the "Newstalgia" magazine and drawing from some Army memories. Going to the Dodgers / Giants game
