John Glass? Margaret Glass? nee Campbell

Info1x Emigration to NZ I think the above photos are John Glass and Margaret Campbell
they were found in an envelope along with the birth cert for
Alfred George Douglas Glass (my father) and
his grandmothers Margret Glass nee Campbell death cert.

My father thought John Glass apprenticed as a baker in Edinburgh,
which fits with his occupation of Baker in 1861 census Edinburgh. and his sisters are working in a bakery in Glasgow in the 1881 census.
When John Glass' son William open his own bakery in Grey Lynn Auckland it was called the Glasgow Bakery.
