Marijuana / Hemp Windbreak:
This image has very little information. It came from a Department of Municipal Affairs Provincial Planning Office collection including reports on population trends. The photos in the collection are both urban and rural, showing street scenes, farm views, crops, etc. This particular photo is of a family from Warwick, Alberta, standing in their garden in front of their obviously thriving windbreak of marijuana aka hemp, in 1931.
