This looks like it was taken in 1970 or 71, to me but on the left of the photo is a photo of Frank on the wall that looks it was taken in the late 70's?

His father contributed with 50% of his genetic material, his mother with the other 50%...

Well, you could read The Real Frank Zappa Book to give you a good start. FZ dedicated a chapter to his dad.

I like to imagine that his father's chubby hand was the model for the cigar toting hand as seen on OSFA.
