View of the Blue Funnel shipping line ship SS Peleus docked at an unknown port. One of six black and white copy negatives depicting ships and maritime navigational tools that relate to Mr Martin Spencer-Hogbin's seafaring career.

Born in England in 1924 Martin Spencer-Hogbin spent his working life in the shipping industry working primarily for the Blue Funnel Line. In 1957 Martin decided to immigrate to Australia from England, believing it would be a better place to raise children. He travelled via a free passage on the Blue Funnel Line, with his wife and two daughters following as full fare paying immigrants. In Australia he was a superintendent for FG Strang, a stevedoring company, of which he later became director. Martin retired in 1987 and settled in Armadale, Victoria.
