Glass Bank and the evolution of transparency – 1931


Dave comes up with the darndest examples to make his point and these are frequently brilliant.

This from Modern Mechanics, August 1931 was a new concept – a glass bank. Apparently in the 1930’s bank robberies were a serious problem. Architect Keally developed the concept of a glass bank. The idea was that if everyone could see inside the bank, no-one would rob it. Keally was in fact referring to the concept of transparency hence we flowed nicely into a Blockchain discussion.
