A Brixton Pound cash machine has opened in Market Row

It's now even easier to get your hands on a wad of Brixton's local currency thanks to a shiny new Brixton Pound cash machine that's opened in Market Row today. It's the world’s first local currency cash machine, and looks more like a money vending machine than your usual ATM. The Brixton Pound launched back in 2009 and there's now B£50,000 in circulation in paper and electronic form. Not only does using the currency help support local businesses, it also looks way more impressive than a boring old £20 note. Each note commemorates a local hero including Brixton's most famous son, David Bowie, who is obviously way cooler than the Queen. No offence, Liz.

Here are five reasons we should celebrate the Brixton Pound

Ithaca HOURS had a "human ATM" back in 1999. We looked for a machine that could disburse but did not find one. Congratulations!
