Who Invented the ATM?

Ever been waiting in the queue and wondered who invented the ATM? Of course you haven't. However, there does seem to be some debate on the subject. Two Scots James Goodfellow and John Shepherd-Barron both lay claim to the title. However ATM Machine dot com have several other contenders. It is a more interesting subject than it seems.

Like stamps, lamp-posts, the first Scottish MacDonalds, radar and Oor Wullie, ATMs started life in Dundee

Maybe I should add 'Comments on blog' to 'text messages, e-mails and phone calls.'
