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: We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

We're thinking that it won't be extremely hard for you to guess what we're looking at in this photo of downtown Seattle, especially given what's currently happening with it in the news. What might be a bit tougher to suss out is exactly where the photo is being taken from. We'll admit, even the photo credits don't say with 100 percent authority, but we've got a rough idea. Do you?
