Cornerspotter: The Curve in the Road

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 Friday. And hey: no cheating!

Aside from the automobiles, the curve in this road doesn't look any different now than as pictured here in 1935. Sure the trolley and it's tracks are gone but the road and surrounding area look basically the same. Even the brick building on the left with the white trim over the windows still stands (though the one in front of it is gone). While it seems like much of Seattle is changing and modernizing, this is one little pocket that's so far refused to do. Any idea where it is?
