Pictured here sometime around 1894, this was formerly the home of the Seattle Public Library. Today, it's neighbor to the right is just a bit taller. Okay, a lot taller. Downstairs, the pub shares the same name as the building, named for an Irish immigrant who made good in early Seattle. So...what building is this and what are the cross-streets?
