Barclays Bank installs the first cash dispenser
27th June 1967
On 27th June 1967, Barclays Bank in the UK installs the first cash dispenser in the world. The machine was installed in Enfield, North London, and officially opened by the actor Reg Varney.
The machine operated very differently from today’s cash machines. Customers were issued with paper vouchers which they inserted into the machine to obtain a single £10 note.
