I want the description to be next to the images

Issue

I really have thrown this together through trial and error so its probably all wrong. Just now I tried adding float: right; to the .detail_image_description because of a suggestion that popped up. I want the description to run at the same level as both of the images so that it describes both.

EDIT: I think I corrected the errors that I had originally in my html. I would like to have two semi large images to the left (my left) of the page with a one block of text for both to the right of those images. I would also like to have this page static as far as the browser size/shape. If CSS Grid is an option; Does this require additional hacks for various browsers? What is convention? I think at this point I am going to ignore mobile use of the site.

Solution

(completely edited after comments of the OP and my answers to them, in order to show what I had suggested in the comments)

Apply float: left and clear: left to the image containers to have the text at their right side and continue below them.

That’s the basics you need, from there you can continue to fine-tune the settings.

body {
  background-color: #ecf0f1;
  display: block;
  margin: 0;
}

.detail_image_title {
  padding: 20px;
  font-family: "BebasNeue-Regular";
  font-size: 3rem;
  font-weight: 10;
  color: #c1cdcd;
  text-align: center;
}

.detail_image_column {
  padding: 35px;
}

.detail_image_description {
  font-family: "ClementePDaa-Hairline";
  font-size: 1.2rem;
  color: #000000;
}

.detail_image_column {
  float: left;
  clear: left;
}
