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 Friday. And hey: no cheating!

While this corner, which we'll narrow down as north of the ship canal, has been spruced up a little bit since 1950, both these buildings are still standing. On one corner you can still find good things to eat (and drink!)... although it's more of a fun bonus for the retailer than a main draw. (Need another hint? They've been in this location for 13 years of their 17-year run.)

The other side of the corner, while not quite as prettified as its neighbor nowadays, has been holding on for quite some time, home to the same antique shop for the past 40 years. It's practically an antique itself.
