I'd like to have a header and then three images side-by-side. When in small screens, the images should occupy all the width and be placed vertically one after another.

For each image, when the mouse is over it, some text should be overlayed. For mobile and touch screens, I don't know how that text could be shown, but would like to have it shown in some way.

Each of the images should point to another html page (not shown in my example.

What I managed to do until now is:

I'd appreciate some help on this.

Without diving deeply, your CSS seems way over-complicated for what's being asked. And never use `float` unless you really, really need to. And this is not one of those need-to cases. Some simple flexbox directives should achieve what you are after.

I'd strip all the CSS that's trying to do the positioning and refer to The Complete Guide to Flexbox for guidance in laying out your images.
