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!

You know this street well but you certainly don't see it looking like it did in 1909 here. Long gone are the trolleys and horse-drawn carriages. And so is that entire block of buildings on the left, not to mention a bunch on the right. These days, you can enjoy some Italian on the right corner and park your corner on the left. Any idea the cross-streets this photo was taken at?
