English translation:contact cameras?
Explanation:
Hi Ailish,

Wild guess time. If the three items on the list refer to types of camera. Then you could have references to the Box camera (detective, or journalist - because it was light weight and portable) the plate or field camera (heavy and cumbersome) and then you are left with a third... "taca" - I am not familiar enough with camera history, but could this be hinting at a contact camera, where an object needed direct contact to transfer an image onto a medium?

As I say, this is more a "lateral thinking" suggestion rather than a true answer, but it may lead you on to something you could use.

All the best, hope to see you some time this year at a powow,

Berni
