Press photos have many lives as stock filler. This 1973 photo of
Gundella sitting on a large stone in an unidentified park (I would guess
Hines since she lived nearby) while holding a broom had a lifespan of
at least 18 years. It was first used as a main photo for a 1973 article
about the Detroit Children's Book Fair, which Gundella appeared at, and a
1991 Neal Shine article concerning selling a house or two. In the
second story a woman who was attempting to sell her home enlisted
Gundella to provide a spell, Which she did in the form of an effigy of
said house in the form of a homemade candle. When the candle was crudely
constructed it was to be burned every night at 7 PM for 21 minutes.
When the candle burned out and would no longer light the house would
sell. Sure as promised the candle burned out one evening and the very
next day the house sold or so the story goes.
