Are You a Hardcore Smiths Fan? Take This Visit to the Salford Lads Club

Anyone who considers themselves a serious Smiths fans knows about the various band-related shrines in and around Manchester. One of the most important sites is the Salford Lads Club, which appears in a number of iconic Smiths photographs. Just Google the name and you’ll find hundreds of images of fans posing in front of the place (something that the club doesn’t really like that much, but oh, well….)

Cam, a “Canadian in Salford” is one of those people.  He recently posted an account of his visit and posted pictures like this.
