World's 1st ATM

World’s 1st ATM

As of September 2nd, 1969, the people of the United States no longer had to spend┬átheir lunch hour waiting in line or rushing out to the bank before the 5 o’clock bank closing to get access to their hard-earned cash for shopping.

Chemical Bank debuted the first automatic teller machine (ATM) at Rockville Center, New York. ┬áThe world’s first ATM was installed by Barclay’s in North London on June, 27th, 1967.

There are now over 425,000 ATMs in use in the United States.
