First off, if a file is already in the local browser's cache, it will not be
re-fetched from the server. I guess that what you are seeing is the time
required to RENDER the page, and not any re-fetch time. This suggests that
your page has alot of thumbnail images on it and is heavier than desirable
as a result. Constraining the number of images on a page, or further
optimizing each image would be a good way to deal with this issue.
Have you considered showing the larger images in pop-up windows rather than
as a link to a new page?

show examples of my work. I have a page of logo thumbnails with are linked
to the larger versions. Each time I load the page with the larger version
and then come back to the thumbnails page, all the thumbnails are reloaded
which slows everything down. Is there a way to overcome this by possibly
linking the enlargement pages together that give the choice on each page to
go BACK - UP - FORWARD?
