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: We'll post the answer on Monday. And hey: no cheating!

Taken in 1916, this photo shows a young chap (making a cellphone call?) in front of an old Pioneer Square hotel. It's still a hotel today, though now it's a national chain. Those storefronts are now places to get flowers and coffee, amongst other things. Any idea what hotel and what street we're looking at?
