"The daylight saving was not established until World War I. If it's 3 p.m. now it means in 1776 it would be 2 p.m."
Why does the speaker use "it would be" when talking about an event in the past? Is it because he's talking about it as a repeted event in the past as in "In 1995 I would go (would go=went) to work"? Waht type of conditional would this be?
