Head on over to Google Maps and hit the 3D Google Earth mode (or download the desktop application), then search for the postcode “M5 3RX” in the “fly to” box.
You’ll be presented with a 3D re-creation of the iconic Salford Lads Club, which featured in The Smiths’ classic The Queen Is Dead album artwork.
The 3D model of the building was created by landscape architect Ste Allan, who created it in SketchUp as part of Google’s Your World in 3D campaign. Obviously a bit of a Morrissey fan, he’s popped a black and white, highly pixellated model of the Moz father outside the building, in the same pose as you’d find him on the album cover.
A great little Easter Egg comfort for indie fans, knowing that, at least in one corner of the Internet, there is a byte that never goes out…
