Extracted from the wayback machine: the series of diagrams the T has used to represent itself online.

The dates are the first date it shows up on archive.org, but likely not the first date it was actually put up. It is likely that the image I have there for 1997-06-03 was actually put up in 1995, as that's the first copyright date the mbta has on their page and they made no changes between 1997-06-03 and late 1999.

In late december 2006, the T redesigned their website in a way that made the wayback machine stop archiving the subway map. They put in a fancy dynamic subway map with the old one still there under "noscript" tags, but apparently the archiving bot didn't follow the old link. Sadness.
