Where John Woolman died

In May of 2000, the days before blogs, I did a 16 city tour of England with A Clear Leading, about early American abolitionist John Woolman. I just stumbled upon a photo of the place where he died, in York, England. The owners at the time let us in. We discovered that the walls of the actual room where he died were painted bright orange, and there were posters of UK rock icons plastering the wall: not how John would have kept it, but I'm sure he'd be glad to know that a young person was there, since he spent a significant amount of his energies reaching them on his many journeys.
