Cornerspotter: The Gas Station's Gone & The View is Next

New, 3 comments

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!

The sign says "For Big Power Difference, Switch to Shell." If you wanted to do that now, you'd have to look elsewhere. This gas station and the entire structure is long gone. And if you really want to see a difference, you just have to look around this spot. Big buildings blot out the view from just about every angle now, or at least they will soon. You might think you've got it thanks to a street sign in the foreground but be warned that road has a different name now. So, any idea where in Seattle this gas station used to be?
