The Three Delevines, acrobatic brothers act. Born in Yorkshire, Harry, Percy and Dennis Delevine made their first appearance in London at the Alhambra in 1887 and became a popular act in Europe and America during tours of 1889 and 1890. During the early 1900s they combined their act with ‘The Two Sisters Winterton’ and as ‘The Five Delevines’ presented ‘Flirtations’, an acrobatic dancing and musical act.
