Sweet Home Alabama...England?

The earlier post on how a map of the state of Georgia made it into a story about the conflict in the European Georgia was strange, but that sort of thing keeps happening. Officials in Birmingham, England mistakenly used a picture of Birmingham, Alabama when printing official leaflets.
Under the headline "Thank You Birmingham!," the picture showed office blocks in the U.S. city, rather than its own distinctive Rotunda tower and the curvy Selfridges store.

The council said it had made a mistake, but had no plans to recall the leaflets.

Those leaflets may become collectors items, as well as an embarrassment for the city council. Link
