Caption

Entitled: J.E. Boyd triplets . The Del Rubio triplets were born as the Boyd triplets (Edith, Elena and Mildred Boyd) on August 23, 1921 in the Panama Canal Zone. Their stage name comes from the colour they dyed their hair; the word rubio means blonde in Spanish. They were an American variety/musical act. They first achieved fame in the US in the 1950s, when they were popular night club performers, appearing often on television, including several Bob Hope programs on NBC. The Del Rubio Triplets made a comeback in the 1980s due to their campy style of dress and their goofy interpretations of standards and songs of the era. Photographed by the National Photo Company, May 3, 1924.
