Here are references to the image:
Metropolitan Museum of Art (good explanatory text)

National Media Archive (scroll down a bit)

Oxford Reference entry for the image

Contemporary interpretation of Talbot’s iconic image from the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibit, “Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography” 2010

More information about William Henry Fox Talbot.

The second essay discusses Charles Nègre, “Chimney Sweeps Walking”, 1852.

It is in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
