My hard drive on my iMac was unrepairable so Apple installed a new one for me.  When I reconnected my external Iomega USB hard drive I could "see" the original backup figures and the rows of "windows" and back to the original red rows of dates in time machine, but I could only access the recent installation date of my new OS X Mountain Lion.  Migration assistant would not work as well only accessing the recent backups.  Is there a way to "unlock" the past data so I can retrieve my documents and photos without resorting to purchasing "rescue" software??

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)
