The construction and operation of a lead-glass calorimeter at the CERN-NA49 experiment was reported. The NA49 experiment was a large acceptance hadron detectors for charged particles. During the dismantling big part of the end cap calorimeter hardware and electronics was salvaged. The calorimeter was found to function such a way that the incoming γ creates an electromagnetic shower, which produces Cherenkov light. The light was converted to electronic signal, by the vacuum photo triode, and it is further amplified.
