Emma Peck née Buswell & her husband Hugh Peck with his brothers George and Edward sailed together for Melbourne, Australia aboard Brunel's SS 'Great Britain' (launched 1843) in 1852. ( the longest passenger ship in the world at that time.)

I wanted to share this family photo of Hugh Peck's token penny from the Victoria Museum with the community. Location: Melbourne, Australia. Date: 1853.
