Cornerspotter: And Then There Was This Garage in 1960

Written by Sarah Anne Lloyd

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: We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

This North Seattle corner has seen a wealth of changes since 1960, and every corner of this intersection -- save for this 1959 garage -- has since become an apartment building. The newest one is just a couple of years old. (The oldest was built in 1988.) The bar behind the garage, which, during this era, was the 102 Tavern, at least made it to this century before burning down, although it'd cycled through a few new bars by then.

Need a hint? The newest building to sprout up across the street from here is named for a former nearby bowling alley.
