Cornerspotter: Take a Dip in the Wading Pool

New, 1 comment

In honor of this nice day, let's take a look back in the day to how people used to cool off (and still do).

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!

It's a beautiful day so it only makes sense to think about some sunny day activities. Perhaps something like a wading pool where the kids of Seattle gathered circa 1950. The good news is that these kids can now bring their kids (and maybe even their kid's kids) to this same spot to cool off during a hot day. If the wading pool itself doesn't give it away, the building in the background there should do it.

So, what Seattle wading pool are we looking at in this photo?
