How to draw a line completely down the page that separates a floated image and text?

Ive been having trouble figuring out how to seperate text thats on the left side of the page and a picture that represents the text on the right. I want to draw a line vertically all the way down the page to show the separation of the 2. I will be putting more paragraphs and images next to each of them. Thank you for your help.

p img{
  float: right;

I think the easiest way would probably be to enclose your left content in a <div> and apply a right border to it, as seen below. You'll need to specify a height, or fill it with content, for it to go all the way down though.

.vertical {
    border-right: 1px solid black;

Hope it helps!
