Does anybody know what shoe size FZ wore? Of course this is a dumb question, but I was looking at shoes the other day and the thought just came to me out of the blue. Anyone want to make a guess?

My right foot's bigger than my other one is- like a regular zomby hoof.

Too bad he didn't live long enough to buy those neat new shoes with lights on them - it would have been fun to see his feetlightup on stage.

If I had to guess, I'd say he wore a size 11, narrow, just based on audience tapes I've heard where he taps his foot to count off a song...

This looks like the corner of Manchester Square and the Wallace Collection residence.

EMI famous for the Beatles Please Please me Lp is across the road.

I think this issue is May 1970, and famously had no Zappa content.

I bet there is no Photographer credit!

It's hardly a mystery. Gail would know and this would be one of the easier questions she could answer.

The picture Slime posted above gives you some idea. If you know someone who lives near where the picture was taken by making a comparison with the picture they could make a fairly accurate estimate.

William Cheyne?

The 2nd Viscount Newhaven, viscount in the Peerage of Ireland?

I was thinking more along the lines of Jaime Fernández.
