    Are we seeing the end of High Street shops?

    When I lived in Enfield our local High Street Barclays had a plaque on it stating that it was the location of the world's first cash machine, opened by Reg Varney in 1967!

    The first Natwest cash card I had (in about 1976) was a punched card which when used the belt display cash machine dispended £10. The machine kept the card which was then posted back to you!
