Two showmen busily leaflet for the show where this film would have been screened, and seem to have co-opted some of the kids hanging around in mid-screen... Workers head off both ways, filmed from a distance (with no sky in the frame). A second shot is taken from a different angle, the workers now cleared. The man being carried by pony trap is clearly a local VIP: perhaps the foundry boss.
