Ebbets Field Rotunda Entrance, 1950

Charlie Ebbets acquired adjacent parcels of land in Flatbush over several years until he had enough space to build a stadium. Construction of Ebbets field began in 1912, and the Brooklyn Dodgers played their first exhibition game in Ebbets Field against rivals the New York Yankees on April 5, 1913. The stadium was the home of the Dodgers until their move to L.A. at the end of the 1957 season. At the time of this photo, the Dodgers were in the midst of a series of good years. Although they didn't win the pennant in 1950, they did in 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, and 1956.
