The Smiths singer can be seen standing outside Salford Lads Club

An image of Morrissey has been hidden in Google Earth, outside the iconic Salford Lads Club.

A pixilated image of The Smiths singer can be seen outside the venue’s posting on the site, apparently hidden by a clever fan of the band working for the company.

You can see the frontman by going to the address of the club on Google Maps and then enabling the 3D buildings mode.

Salford Lads Club is an iconic site in the mythology of The Smiths. It appeared in the music video for ‘I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish’ and on the sleeve of their album ‘The Queen Is Dead’.

The club was founded in 1904 by Robert Baden-Powell, who would later found the Scout movement in the UK. Former members include actor Albert Finney and Hollies members Allan Clarke and Graham Nash, the latter of whom went on to form Crosby Stills Nash & Young.

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.
