York is a now a major Northern city, but the city centre, where Shelley, Hogg and Harriet went after leaving Edinburgh in October of 1811 (and where Hogg tried to seduce Harriet), is still a picturesque market town with a lively tourist trade.
We attempted to locate "Miss Dancer's, Coney Street " and the Blake Street address at the local public library without success—although Blake and Cony-Street still exist, without specific addresses, we were unable to determine the exact Shelley sites. Dan Hall, however, had the good sense to look in the Oxford University Press Literary Guide to Britain and found Miss Dancer's at “20 Coney Street.” Biff Vernon visited York and took this photo of the site.
