Take a guess as to where in Seattle this 1908 terra cotta building is located

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!

Designed by Charles Saunders and George Lawton, this terra cotta building was built as a department store in Seattle in 1908 and later became the headquarters for a national bank in the 20's. Two more floors were added in the years around 1940. In the late 50's it was structurally combined with a newer building next door to become a much bigger financial center. For clues, you'll probably notice the Hotel Savoy and Pantages Theatre nearby.

Sn any idea where this Seattle building is located?
