World's 1st ATM

World’s 1st ATM

As of September 2nd, 1969, the people of the United States no longer had to spend their 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.  The 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.
