Black and white photograph entitled 'Ai-Todor'. The photograph shows H. H. Princess Irina 's baby daughter sat in a pram with Madame Zelrius and H. H. Prince Peter of Oldenburg, in military uniform, standing behind. An un-named woman, her face not seen stands to the right with hand on the pram. Taken by Herbert Galloway Stewart in The Crimea, in April 1916.

From page 6 of snapshot album number 18 of the Russian Imperial Royal Family, compiled by Herbert Galloway Stewart (1866-1960).

The little girl in the pram, identified by Herbert Galloway Stewart only as 'Princess Irina’s baby', is the daughter of H. H. Princess Irina and Prince Felix Felixovich Yusupov.

Princess Irina Felixovna Yusupova, known as "Bebé" to her family, was born on 21 March 1915. After the February Revolution, the family settled in Paris, with the young Princess being raised by her paternal grandparents, returning to her parents when she was nine years old.
