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!

Pictured is a busy Seattle intersection in 1968 that's even more busy today. That peak-a-boo view around the corner is long gone thanks to development as well as some big-ass trees planted along the sidewalk since then. All those businesses are gone, including the Fairmount Hotel (we've got a Fairmont today, but in a different spot). So, any idea what the intersection is we're looking at?
