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 seems like a pretty normal scene for Seattle in 1933. Old timey cars drive on old timey roads past old timey buildings while an old timey guy crosses the street. These days, those first three buildings on the left are gone. The skinny white one past them is still standing, though. What looks like a dentist's office on the right side is now a corner market, though that half-circle design over the door remains. So, any idea which Seattle intersection you're looking at?
