Screenshot of First Commons Homepage
I have tried with the Wayback Machine - for example: https://web.archive.org/web/20090328021608/http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/
The CSS is not resolving. I have tried the archive dates before the official launch, but I always get an unstyled page. After the official launch all archive pages style correctly.
Is there a way to see the actual site as it was back then? Even an old screenshot would suffice.
I am working on a Commons Timeline - https://news.commons.gc.cuny.edu/commons-ten-year-retrospective/ and it would be great to show the first instances of the Commons.

I tried a couple ways of resurrecting enough of the 2009 site to get a screenshot, but I'm coming up short. The Git history of our codebase goes back to May 2010, and the 1.0 redesign launched in Nov or Dec 2009 (see https://web.archive.org/web/20091116144953/http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/ and https://web.archive.org/web/20091218083503/http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/)
Matt, do you have any screenshots or maybe an old backup?
