What’s 1966 famous for?

England winning the World Cup? Well I guess so, but it was also the year that the first credit card in the UK was issued by Barclaycard.

And who launched the first telephone banking system in the UK and in what year? Girobank in 1980.

These and other interesting titbits can be found at A history of innovation in payments.
