The first photo is feeding metal into the furnace, since the day is just starting the furnace is cold (a big hint is the lack of protective gear).
Next are scenes for scraping the slag from the top of the crucible, slag is usually a crude glass mainly caused but the melting sand from the metal we are re-melting from previous pours).
Next we lift the crucible out of the furnace (the metal is roughly 2200F) so we are taking extreme care NOT to spill it.
And these last 4 photos are of the molten bronze being poured into the molds.
