Once upon a time, money lived in the bank. When you wanted to buy something, you asked the teller to be so kind as to hand over some of your cash. If you were a woman, you had to ask your husband to get the money out for you. It wasn’t until the 1960s in the US and 1975 in the UK when women were allowed to have their own bank account. You took your money to the store, paid for the thing you wanted, and received your change – and your receipt might even be hand-written.
