navcon image wont show up

ok so I am using js to have a navcon show up when the screen size is at mobile scale. Basically this with a flick function that contains a slide toggle.

$("#nav").addClass("js").before('<div id="menu"><img href="image/MobileMenuIcon.png" id="menuImage"></div>');

before I was using some unicode for the three bar image but I decided to use an image so it is sharper and I can manipulate its size easier. My CSS involving the navcon looks like so in my mobile.css

#menu {          /*is the mobile menu icon pops when screen is under a certain size*/

        display: block;

        font-size: 1.35em;
        padding: 20px 20px 20px 20px;

        float: left;

        position: fixed;
        top:  0;
        text-align: left;


    #menuImage {
        width: 100px;
        height: 100px;


All that shows up is a blank white box.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
