    I’m glad you found this, Dave. It confirms the correct 1946 date of the Berkey demonstration, which I had previously guessed was 1947. The photo of the industrial plant was taken at the Parkway Jeep plant in Toledo, and it probably was 1947. There are more details and photos of both of these demonstrations on the “CJ-2A Fire Engine History” page at

    Gay Fire Dept. in the Keweenaw of the Upper Peninsula of MI had one of these. By the time I saw it, it was out of service, but on display in Copper Harbor and looked very complete. (Back in the 80’s, 90’s timeframe.) Sometime in the 2000’s it was gone…I always wanted to buy it, but never had any extra money at the time.

    Maybe someone in this community knows where it ended up?
