        I thought it would be useful if the little “pop up” pieces of text
        that appear when you hover over underlined words in the diary could
        also contain pictures. So I’ve been through all the people in the
        Encyclopedia who are also linked to Wikipedia pages, and copied any
        portraits found there.

        246 people from the diary have portraits on their Wikipedia pages, and
        I’ve now added all these to the “pop up” texts. For example, on 4th
        August 1666, you can now easily see what Hinchingbroke, Penn and De
        Ruyter looked like: http://www.pepysdiary.com/archive/1666/08/04/

        I hope this makes it a little easier to picture the scenes Pepys
        described, and also to keep track of who’s who — I find this easier
        with pictures rather than names.

        If you find any copyright free images of people (or other things!)
        that don’t currently have “pop up” pictures, do email me or post a
        comment below.
