Judging by the cars, the change from the A-frame entrance to the look above happened already in the late 60s/ early 70s

It might be of interest that the "thatched roof" on the corner seems to have been made of the same weather-resistent metal fronds that the wonderful SAFARI CLUB in the little lumber town of Estacada uses:


Main Street Estacada


Humu and Naomi under the sign


This place is taxidermy heaven

This stuff clearly survived the rainy Northwest climate much better than real palm frond thatching would have.
