CSS - table and image height issue


I have a table, and one of the columns displays a preview to a document. The preview is about 1000px in height, but I want the row to be limited to 100px in height, and the user can scroll to see the rest of the preview, or just click on the link to open the document in Word Online.

With the samples below, the row height keeps adjusting to fit the whole image.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to my sample on w3schools

Here is the HTML I am using:
<!DOCTYPE html>
table, th, td {
    border: 1px solid black;

ex1 {
    max-height: 50px;
    overflow: auto;

  <tr >
    <td class="ex1"><img src="https://www.clicktorelease.com/tmp/google-svg/image.svg" height="250px"/></td>
    <td >$100</td>

Try adding a div to the table cell, and style on that:

    <td class="ex1"><div><img src="https://www.clicktorelease.com/tmp/google-svg/image.svg" height="250px"/></div></td>

.ex1 div {
    max-height: 50px;
    overflow: auto;
