Though I was not able to simply wrap the code for the popup in a display:none css div, I could isolate my display:none div to wrap only the image, and without the 1. Overlay, 2. Popup and 3. Image css definitions showing on the mobile view, it is now clean and user-friendly.

While the change will be invisible to the billions of internet users out there, starting in October, the US government will no longer control what some call the internet's 'phone book.'"

... "Again, regular users won't notice a difference in their internet come October, but the switch isn't without controversy."; More about the internet transfer
