New, 2 comments

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 1905, this spot started out as a home to a pharmacy but became a cantina once Prohibition ended. Since then, it's been the sight of a hold up at least four different times across the decades and different ownerships. These days its all boarded up and for sale. Any idea where this infamous building is?
