I don't know very much about this set of images, sorry.
They were handed to me as a "set", and I printed them for my client.
They were film negs, not glass plates, probably shot in the early 1940's.
He had found them at an estate sale in an old trunk.
I no-longer have contact with him, and I'm sure he didn't have any knowledge at all of this set of images.

A couple of the pix have women in them, standing back away from the work, just looking on.
This gives me the impression that this is a family business.
In many of the pics, the men are using "cant hooks" or maybe "peavies" it's hard to see them to be sure.
- per WikipediA: "A cant hook is a traditional logging tool consisting of a wooden lever handle
with a movable metal hook called a dog at one end, used for handling and turning logs and cants,
especially in sawmills. Unlike the similar peavey, the cant hook has a blunt tip, often bearing teeth."

A cant is a partially sawn log with at least one flat side.
That is, you can have a one-sided cant (sawn on one side only and the other three sides still round),
a two sided cant (sawn on two sides, usually opposite sides), three sided, and four sided.
