PHILADELPHIA — All that's left after 89 years, since police officer Joseph T. Swierczynski's death, are some newspaper clippings, old photos and family members proud to share his last name.
The Swierczynski family gathered yesterday to honor their grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great- grandfather, and to memorialize the spot, at 9th and Christian streets, South Philadelphia, where he gave his life in the line of duty.
