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 in 1969, this notable building was originally built in 1903 when it was used as Seattle's first mortuary building. While it only looks like there's three levels, there's actually five, but you can only tell from the rear when the slope gives way. As you might imagine,given it's history, some folks believe it's haunted. They still show up in droves to hang out in the pub on the other side. So, any idea what Seattle building you're looking at?
