Why « 1st »?

This building caught my attention because of the big «1st » sign it has on the roof. When I got back home I did some research to understand the sign. Turns out that this is the First National Bank Building, built in 1915. It was the tallest skyscraper in St Paul until the Wells Fargo Place exceeded it. Interesting fact: it has the tallest connecting skyway in the Twin Cities.
