This is a mural painted on the side of a building in Chemainus BC. The caption in it says... ‘Memories of a Chinese Boy
When I returned to Chemainus I went to school and helped my parents in the store.
Our store was the centre of activity especially used by the people from the Islands as a waiting spot for boat transportation or for the right tide to set out on to meet friends, to leave messages and any other help the family could give. My mother gave candies to the children, they called her Grandmother, while the customers called her Mother Chang.’ Ning Chang. The mural portrays the store operated by Ning Chang, (the first Chinese child born in Chemainus, 1913). It was painted in 1996 by Cheng Shu-Ren (Arthur Cheng), Surrey, BC
