Historic Alabama: First National Bank of Montgomery sidewalk teller

First National Bank of Montgomery

ATMs were probably not even a figment of anyone’s imagination, and this curbside teller was perhaps a fancy addition to the streets of Montgomery in 1953. It was on the sidewalk in front of the First National Bank of Montgomery at Commerce Street and Court Square downtown. Other businesses of the day, including the Exchange Hotel, Schwobilt and the Jefferson Davis Hotel, are visible in the background. Photo from the Alabama Department of Archives & History.
