The activation of the website was announced in the Vancouver Sun newspaper on Tuesday, October 29, 2013, page A11. The editor featured the announcement as the Letter of the Day. Numerous responses have been received. Unfortunately, the photograph inserted by the Sun editor is of the American Emily Sartain (1841-1927) and not the Victoria Emily. The two Emily’s are distantly related. Both were artists. The US artist specialized in human portraits and landscapes. The Victoria Emily specialized in floral portraits.
