Cornerspotter: Seattle Police Motorcycle Line-Up in 1973

New, 3 comments

Take a guess as to why all of these people and cops are hanging out in 1973

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!

We're not sure what the event is that has so many bystanders and so many Seattle police motorcycle cops lined up. We assume some kind of parade or notable visit. We're not going to pretend that's not the monorail over there on the right but we'll leave it up to you to determine exactly where along the route we are. There's a pretty tall hotel located just on the other side of the track.

So, any idea what intersection this spot is closest to?
