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: firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

Today, you'd come to this downtown corner to do some clothing shopping but back in 1910, it's where you'd lay your weary head. You had two options, Hotel Shirley on the left and Alpha Hotel on the right. And if you had the energy, you could kill some time playing pool under the Alpha. Got any guesses as to what intersection we're standing at?
