Located on the exterior of the Palm Street Parking Structure (the heart of the historic Chinatown district), this mosaic tile mural commemorates our City’s Chinese pioneers. These are the Chinese symbols for Love and Joy.

Chinatown reached its peak in the late 19th century. Consisting of portions of three city blocks, it was the largest Chinese settlement in San Luis Obispo County. At its hub was the Ah Louis Store, situated among other shops, restaurants, living quarters for Chinese merchants and their families, and boarding houses for Chinese laborers.
