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!

Back in 1925, you could find the boys just hanging out on this street corner doing...whatever it is the boys did in 1925. Today this Central Seattle block is way more tree-lined but it's cool to see some of those exact houses straight-ahead still standing. It's also a central spot with a high school just a few blocks one way and a college a few blocks the other way. So we suppose it wouldn't be too surprising the find a similar scene to this in 2015 as well. Any idea what intersection we're at?
