According to the book “The Great Daylight Saving Time Controversy” by Chris Pearce (https://books.google.ca/books?isbn=1925516962), New Brunswick skipped daylight saving in 1973 after the province was hit by major flooding.

https://data.iana.org/time-zones/ seems to contain only tzdata releases from 2016 upwards.
I need to look into pre-2005 ones. Where can I find them?
The reason is that I am checking New Brunswick, Canada DST in 1973.
The zone America/Moncton was introduced in 2007, to be able to represent an unusual clock time of 0:01 for DST onset.
America/Moncton does not list DST for 1973.
That is the only year between 1945 and 2020 that NB would not have DST.
Nearby zones like Halifax or ST_Johns have 1973 DST, just like the rest of Canada?
Is there a bug in America/Moncton ?
Shanks has DST in 1973 for New Brunswick.
