What used to be the easiest way open a bank account?

What used to be the easiest way open a bank account? Internet banking has become so widely used that anyone looking to open a bank account in Generation Facebook would automatically reach for the nearest mouse. But remember way back when, when the internet didn't do virtually anything we asked of it and opening a bank account was a matter of actually going into a bank in person? How did you do your banking then?
