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!

This stretch of road has changed and then some since it first existed in the 1890s. Lots of old Seattle landmarks on each side of the street as well as down the road. This happens to be 1944, but no matter when you look at it, it's always been a notable throughway. So...what street are we looking at?
