Cornerspotter: Residentially-Located in 1960

New, 3 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!

This corner might not be immediately recognizable to those who aren't familiar with the neighborhood. While it's centrally-located — a mile and a half south of the ship canal -- its deeply-residential nature puts some distance between it and landmarks. At least the pictured apartment building, then brand-new, are still around. (And the big ol' house, too!)

The intersection is also near several parks. While the closest ones are quite small, it's five blocks away from a 14-acre park… but since that park shares a name with one of this corner's cross streets, you'll just have to guess which one.
