Dont get attached to fair use. Its not part of our

Certian historic images
company logos are fairly harmless, except where they are being used as
decoration, when we can get rid of them.
I agree that a few of the historic images are worth keeping, the ones
which have articles.
How is this consistent with your initial declaration that "it will
all be gone in a few years"? Either fair use is sometimes acceptable
or never acceptable - even one fair use image, no matter how much it
is "worth keeping", makes en: non-free.
And of course if you admit the principle that some nonfree images
are allowable, you've reduced it to a matter of personal opinion as
to whether any class of nonfree image is worth including. Every
class of image now accepted has a number of respected editors who
support including that class.
