1978 Press Photo Of Gundella from the Detroit News

Gundella Detroit News Press Photo 3a 1973

Gundella Detroit News Press Photo 3b 1973

While the notes on the back of this photo from 1978 mention "maywine", "washing hands" and "ringing a bell" next to Gundella's name and a few of her friends (or associates; Agnes Inez, Joyce Budzizewski and Elaine Howard) I have a feeling that she's actually showcasing how to perform some kind of spell, though I'm merely taking a blind guess.

There's also a mention of a Host Hotel but I'm not old enough to remember if that was a chain hotel or a local one and Google searches were no help in the matter since both search words are rather generic. The Marriott is listed under Host Hotels & Resorts but a search for Gundella and Marriott yielded nothing either. The reporter is listed simply as "Lori" (and I'm assuming that's a first name) is another dead end. The photographer is most likely the same Don Batten which several Google searches under his name and the Detroit News produce photographs from the 1960s and 70s but that's about all I could find.

Anyhow, this photo and three others are still for sale on eBay! If I had $60 to blow for the 4 I'd be in possession of them already.
