Is there a collection of images showing how Steam looked like, (what games were available, the chat, library, etc)

Just interested in how much Steam has changed since it started.

Just imagine everything looking ugly as ****, and in place of the chat and friends list there would be similar sized windows saying that the chat/friends list wasn't working.
