Naw, I think the 2 on the left were outside sales reps. The one on the right looks like an outlaw.

It is energy intensive work to do with out a machine. Basically mixing the components, and breaking up clumps in the sand. During initial mulling, naturally occuring clumps are broken up. During casting, the heat from the metal tends to bond the sand into clumps, especially that close to the hot metal. It is often necessary to re-mull the sand so it can be reused.
The riddle, or sifter, is used to assure the clumps are out.

Crowds, including surf lifesavers, appear surrounding the ditch and observing the work being carried out. As the work commenced on 16 November 1912, Pacific Cable Board officials were present overseeing a collection of workmen with shovels, telescopes and signalling flags. The cable steamer reportedly had 1,400 miles of cable on its end, as it made its way from Bondi to Auckland, New Zealand. It is possible that this photograph was taken the day the work commenced.

Not much info for this one beyond the year 1930, Hungary, and "mechanics".
