|Non-free media information and use rationale for San Diego and Arizona Railway|
Full-color "Drumhead" logo for San Diego and Arizona Railway.
San Diego Railroad Museum Library.
The entire logo is used to convey the meaning intended and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the intended image.
The logo is 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 placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing the San Diego and Arizona Railway, a subject of public interest. The significance of the logo is to help the reader identify the organization, assure the reader 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 logo there is almost certainly no free equivalent. 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.
