Well remember the Department stores had 'them' vacuum systems going from the sales counters to a central cashier, receipt and any change came by the return pipe.

Yep, remember those well. When we moved here in 1979, there was a local store that used wire baskets traveling by overhead wires to a central cashier's station on the mezzanine level. Clerk put the bill and your money in a basket and dispatched it and few minutes later your receipt and change came back. Not too long after that 9by mid-80s) that was dismantled and went in storage, and cash registers appeared on the sales floor. oh well.
