Local websites going back 20 years

The internet archives is a showcase of online history

The City of Sarnia website in 1998.

A lot has changed in the past 20 years.

Computers have entered almost every home and a website is essential to most businesses, governments, and even individuals. Over the years, the websites themselves have changed a lot too. The Lambton Shield stepped into the past and looked at local municipal websites saved on the¬†Internet Archive’s WayBack Machine.

These may not be the first version of the websites, but the earliest editions saved on the WayBack Machine.
