Cornerspotter: A School Gone By

Cornerspotter is the Curbed Seattle feature in which we show you a historical photo taken somewhere in the city and you identify the location. Impress fellow Curbed readers with your knowledge by leaving guesses in the comments or send them to our tipline: seattle@curbed.com. We'll post the answer on Monday. And hey: no cheating!

Built in 1889, this building was a long-time school, ranging from elementary students to vocational classes. The earthquake of 1949 did a lot of damage to her and she was finally demolished in August 1953. These days, you don't drive by this property, you drive ON this property. Any idea what building we're looking at and where it is in current Seattle?
