Cornerspotted: It's Valley Street & Boren Avenue

Yesterday, we asked you to guess where this Seattle spot that's seemingly always under construction is located. It was a fairly easy one and we got a bunch of guesses that it's Valley Street in South Lake Union looking east.

Images: Seattle Municipal Archives, Google Maps Back in 1914, that was the Ford Motor Co. assembly plant straight ahead. As South Lake Union built up around it, this is where Model T's were assembled for those of us here in the Northwest. It's since become a Public Storage building.

Commenter walker-d reminds us, "A lot of changes to this neighborhood over the decades, from when I first saw it back in the mid sixties; then a very gritty working area of Lake Union with businesses that would probably amaze many of the present South Lake Union work force and residents."
