Page is hanging trying to load a pair of jquery files

and doesn't seem to display images without them. The rest of the page did render eventually though.

If anyone else has this issue, right clicking the image and using "View Image" does work, I guess it's relying on jquery to display them on the page or something?

Images are hidden by default until a script shows them with an animation (fade) once they're loaded. The script is part of the Wordpress theme this site is using. Clearly it's old code considering it's relying on code only compatible with jQuery 1.2.1 which was released in 2007.

To be fair, that's jQuery Migrate 1.2, which was released in 2013. Not much better, but still... jQuery 1.11 (the version it's actually using) was released in 2014.
