I spent much of the last year digging around for web pages from
1993-1995 (pre Archive.org's Wayback Machine) and they are somewhat
hard to find.  Besides the fine resources you folks have listed above,
there's also Jiří Peterka, a hard working Czech-based web archivist
with this site: http://www.muzeuminternetu.cz/

All the antique web pages I found, and all the old-timey web browsers
I could get working I listed in the credits for "overshare: the
links.net story" a personal web history documentary published free on
the web. Here's the credits page:
http://overshare.links.net/credits.html and you can find free copies
of the documentary here: http://overshare.links.net
