The History of Brooklyn Told Through Historic Photographs

Nashville, TN (OPENPRESS) September 3, 2008 -- Known in the past as the "City of Churches," Brooklyn has been an integral part of the fabric of the United States' history. The story of this borough reflects both a diverse and progressive spirit, and a unique culture that is the foundation of the borough's present-day prosperity.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by author John B. Manbeck, Historic Photos of Brooklyn rediscovers the fascinating past of this city through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Brooklyn Historical Society, Brooklyn Public Library—Brooklyn Collection, Kingsborough Historical Society, Library of Congress, and the New York State Archives, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

From the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 and the launching of the USS Maine, to the Brooklyn Dodgers and Coney Island, and much more, Brooklyn shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.

"History tells us as much about our future as about our past. Before movies, still photographs told us about our roots…Recently, communities have been retro fitted with the help of past records and photos," says author Manbeck.

Historic Photos of Brooklyn is part of Turner Publishing's Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of the great cities across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
