5 Great Photos Of Carole King As A 17-Year-Old

Carole King at a recording session at RCA Studio B in New York City when she was just 17 in these photos. At that age, she married Gerry Goffin in a Jewish ceremony on Long Island in August 1959 after King had become pregnant with her first daughter, Louise. They left college and took daytime jobs, Goffin working as an assistant chemist and King as a secretary, while writing songs together in the evening at an office belonging to Don Kirshner’s Aldon Music at 1650 Broadway opposite the Brill Building.
