Built around 1889, this brick building has seen a lot come and go in its time. Perhaps surprisingly, that tiny building next store stuck around as well. Probably not surprisingly, there's a much bigger building next to both of them now. Like, really big. Past tenants include the Seattle Public Library, Wilson's Modern Business College and Thomas Investment Co. and it's still used mostly for offices today. Any idea where it's located in Seattle?
