Great great grandma at Ship Cafe, Venice California

Somebody recently sent me this photo of her great great grandmother standing outside the Ship Cafe in what she educated-guessed the early 1920s. She wanted confirmation that it was the famous one in Venice. Looking at other photos I have, I was able to match that intricate strip of carved wood. But that circular light fixture above the woman's head proved to be something else again. In none of the photos I have or any I found on a Google image search was I able to see that fixture. My guess is that it's inside the entrance that was later built onto the side of the "ship" it was lost in the fire. But if anyone reading this has a photo of the Ship Cafe which shows that light fixture, I would love to see it.
