Pere_Marquette_Herald.png (100 × 100 pixels, file size: 4 KB, MIME type: image/png)
This is the logo for Pere Marquette Railway.
The logo may be obtained from Pere Marquette Railway.
The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.
The logo is of a size and resolution sufficient to maintain the quality intended by the company or organization, without being unnecessarily high resolution.
|Purpose of use||
The image is used to identify the organization Pere Marquette Railway, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the readers that they have reached the right article containing critical commentary about the organization, and illustrate the organization's intended branding message in a way that words alone could not convey.
Because it is a non-free logo, there is almost certainly no free representation. Any substitute that is not a derivative work would fail to convey the meaning intended, would tarnish or misrepresent its image, or would fail its purpose of identification or commentary.
