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!

Back when this Seattle neighborhood was still mostly dirt, they still made sure to build a fire station first. A whole lot has happened in the 101 years since. That dirt got paved. Trees grew up. Amazingly, not only is the fire station still there (as a clinic) but those two bungalows on each side still stand as well. On the neighborhood's main street, no less. So, any idea what intersection we're at?
