    Old painted signs on brick - intellectual property rejections


      Hello All


      Can anyone enlighten me on the way to get images accepted of the old fashioned painted signs on brick buildings? The companies represented are defunct, not reachable for a release, just a relic in time.  Here are 2 examples of this - one specifically a company name (Walla Walla Candy Co), and the other so generic & simple it says only "Tin Shop". Both were rejected for intellectual property issues.  Thumbnail Images   below. 


      In essence, how is it possible to get a release from a company that no longer exists, and hasn't for decades?  To me it's the same as an old barn.
