Cornerspotter: A Queen Anne in Beacon Hill in 1924

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!

Over 90 years later and, aside from some added greenery and much-newer cars, this North Beacon Hill corner seems largely the same. The house on the northeast corner — the one in focus — has some added privacy thanks to a large tree on its south side, and I can't help but wonder if it's the same one pictured here.

Speaking of trees, there are five whole city parks within three blocks of this spot. Some are a little bigger than others, though; one of them is really more of a garden.
