Just weeks before the US was dragged into World War II, the borough of Brooklyn was in a celebratory mood, honoring its NL Champion Dodgers and cheering them on to the Subway Series clash vs. the rival Yankees. This photo was a contest entry on its original cardboard mount, with the reverse side reading: "HAIL THE CHAMPS BY BEN GREENHAUS... THE NEW YORK TIMES TAKEN WITH A SPEED GRAPHIC ON EASTMAN COMMERCIAL ORTHO FILM, ONE TWENTY FIFTH OF A SECOND AT F. 5.6. THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN DURING THE PARADE FOR THE BROOKLYN DODGER BASEBALL TEAM AFTER THEY WON THE NATIONAL LEAGUE PENNANT." The matte has sustained some damage, with an individual crease that affects the photo with a small, one-inch crease. Otherwise, it is NRMT.
