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: firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!
This is a downtown Seattle view in 1889 so don't feel too bad if you don't recognize it. We chose it because the site is now home to a prominent place in Seattle government. It's also one block away from a site that was in the news for nefarious reasons this week. The Great Seattle Fire came through here soon after the fire was taken but based on what you can see and what we've told you, take a guess as to what intersection this is today.
