Removing review after buying an existing business

Since October 2015, I have been trying to remove old Google reviews no longer relevant to our business - with no luck. We bought the Digiworld business in September 2014.  We closed the retail outlet, rebranded, moved to a new location and focussed exclusively on  B2B clients.  We even changed the name from Digiworld to Digiworld Australia. Yet the retail customer reviews prior to 2014 - for a very different business to the one we run today -  continue to plague our rating. Oh, and to add insult to injury, Google includes an old photo of the old premises, with the old logo, amongst our photos.

@Digiworld A I know it's been a few weeks since you posted here - is this still an issue for you or have you been able to resolve the problem?
