You can also use overpass turbo and the attic feature of Overpass API to reconstruct a way how it was back then, or what changed between two dates. For the sake of simplicity, I will focus on the former:
out meta geom;
overpass turbo link: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/drR
Try to experiment with different dates and check the results. Note that earliest possible date is in September 2012 (ODbL license change).
If you're interested in the difference, please check the Overpass QL documentation in the OSM wiki for
[adiff: ] and
(changed: ...) keywords.
