I e-mailed Tammy a few months   # ago to ask if Sunday June 2 was a reasonable guess. She said it was just   # as plausible as any other date (in June). She also said that after writing   # the article she had discovered another time change in 1916; this is the   # subject of another article which she wrote in October 2010.   # http://www.creston.museum.bc.ca/index.php?module=comments&uop=view_comment&cm+id=56
