Cornerspotted: It's NE 43rd Street and University Way NE

Written by Sarah Anne Lloyd

Yesterday, we asked you to guess the location of a central Seattle corner, pictured 60 years ago. Reader Christian got this corner, although not the secondhand clothing purveyor that occupies it: NE 43rd St and University Way NE.

Images: Seattle Municipal Archives, Google Maps The University District, although an evolving neighborhood like any other, isn't one to make changes too quickly — although it's no surprise that these buildings have switched it up a little in the past 55 years. This building at the left has since lost that stone facade and gained a black awning; it's now home to a Crossroads Trading Co. One side of University Baptist Church is visible in the back.

The surviving neon signs referenced in your clues, of course, belong to University District staple Flowers, a bar that, from the outside, looks like a retro flower shop.
