Can a web page of images with 'endless scrolling' be searched?

Can a web page with ‘endless scrolling’ of mostly images (and some keyword text under each image) be searched by keyword? Or does the endless scrolling need to stop or be broken into ‘load more images’ pages?

I’ve done this several ways, the easiest was a huge file of all the images/html for the script to grab from and as the real page scrolled, it loaded another chunk of the html, keeping track of which elements it now had. If a user searched, the search was done on the large html file, if found the script would attempt using the one it already loaded or go grab it from the html. This isn’t the most efficient way but figured it might help see how it could work.
