Vintage ATM


We found this vintage ATM, or "Mini-Bank" as it was known back in the day, in a small coffee shop in Clermont, Florida. I don't think it is operational, but I didn't try it. I was afraid it would have eaten my ATM card!

Ah, always comforting to know that I'm not the only "vintage thing" around these days!! I hope you're enjoying your weekend -- so far!!!

Nice find Lowell. I think you were wise not to try it!

Kay said...

Wow. It's from the days before we even knew what an "ATM" might have been. It actually looks kind of cute.

Never thought I'd see the day when an ATM was historical!

I love watching how devices change over the years. Think of banking back in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" to this mini-teller, that is already a dinosaur.


I'm still in disbelief over Tina and her husband. She was such a good blogging friend. Losing Bird man and now Camera girl. It is strange to mourn people you have never met in person, but they were always there in our lives.

It's pretty cool though Lowell, and I bet it's a good conversation piece :)

Oh wow, I haven't seen one like that in years. There was a bank here that when they first installed them, they advertised it as the "ugly teller".

I'd expect it to play Witch Doctor or Yakkety-Yak.

Funny to think these things are "vintage" now!

With your artistry it looks even more vintage. Nicely done.
