Cornerspotter is a Curbed Philly 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: philly@curbed.com. And hey: no cheating!.

This is an interesting block—one of those Philadelphia streets where half looks like it was built yesterday and the other half still bears all the hallmarks of another century. These homes still stand, though look across the street, and it's a different world. This photo was taken in the early 20th century.

So where is it?
