These are some historic examples we showed last year: http://ds7.osa.digital/index.php/2015/09/23/representing-time-some-historical-examples/

and some contemporary examples: http://ds7.osa.digital/index.php/2015/09/25/representing-time-some-contemporary-examples/ (you can click on them to view them at a larger scale.
