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!

Built sometime around 1892 or 1893, this building survived the Great Seattle Fire of 1889 but almost didn't survive a fire in 2007. Who knows what the interiors look like but the exterior brick walls still stand. You'll probably notice the name G.O. Guy, Leading Druggist, which made this the home of one of Seattle's original pharmacy chains. The building is actually currently for sale, asking $3,500,000. Figure out what it is and where it is and then figure out if you want to buy it.
