The Queen of Soul


I sent this via Postcrossing to a Postcrosser in the Netherlands who said she likes Aretha Franklin. Aretha is one of my very favorite singers, and this postcard was quite dear to me... glad I found someone who would appreciate it.

As a regretful aside, I do wish I could find a good photo postcard of Aretha from this golden era of her career that does NOT include her holding a cigarette. But this is still a great image.


  1. I didn't even notice the cigarette until I read the post. Mostly I was breathing a sigh of relief. When I read the title of your post, I was somehow afraid that it might be announcing her death. Thank goodness, no.

  2. I didn't notice the cig either. Love the Queen of Soul!
