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!

You're looking down one of Downtown Seattle's main thoroughfares in 1928. Let's just be thankful that all those trolley tracks and train rails are gone cause it would make for quite the bumpy ride nowadays. Perhaps that theatre on the left is a dead giveaway but if not, take a wild guess as to which intersection we're at in the photo.
