1900 Eden AUCKLAND William campbell Glass, Devonport, Storekeeper( 2nd property?)
Various Directories of the time show William is also a Baker
The 1906 entry appears to show William working for his father, (Johns's bakery was on the corner of Hastings and Victoria) but my father dosn't recollect William working with his father so this may be another bakery in the same street, on the other hand as Euphemia had just Eloped with the Bread rounds man in 1906 he may have still been working for his father.

living there.

It appears William may now also be running his fathers shop

John and Margaret died in 1917 so the following entry seems in error
William is probably running both shops,whilst sorting out his mothers probate

Soon after they moved to
2 Rose Rd ,Grey Lynn, Auckland city where they remained for some time.

My father thought John Glass was supposed to have been appenticed as a baker in Edinburgh, however 3 of John's sisters are in the 1881 census as sales assistants for a bakery in Glasgow, so it might be wrong given that William named his bakery in Grey lynn
Glasgow Bakery
