“Teller-Vision” Cage (Oct, 1941)

A Teller-Vision Cage sounds like something a redneck would use to protect his TV from being stolen.

Bank Gives Curb Service to Motorists with Novel “Teller-Vision” Cage

Called the first of its kind in the country, a curbside teller’s window for motorists has been placed in service by the American National Bank, Portsmouth, Va. Without leaving his car, a customer may make deposits or transact other business. To forestall robbery, the teller occupies an underground chamber, but he and the customer see each other face to face through mirrors of a large periscope. An electrical system permits two-way conversation. Money and papers are conveyed between customer and teller by a miniature electric dumbwaiter, controlled by push buttons from below.

    Isn’t Teller vision what they used to observe the A-Tests?
