A clever Smiths fan at Google Earth has hidden a highly pixilated image of the band's frontman Morrissey in front of the Salford Lads Club in Manchester, England. The building is a crucial part of the band's iconography, having appeared in the music video for their song "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" and on the front cover of their classic album The Queen Is Dead. You can see a screen capture above, or find it yourself by going to the address of the club on Google Maps and enable 3D Buildings mode.

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. Similarly, an image of the the Blues Brothers can be seen near the Tacony Palmyra Bridge in New Jersey.
