Living in the Wudadao area of Tianjin, Liddel would take his future wife to the Kiessling Restaurant on Xiao Bailou; which is still there, but in its heyday the most famed Western restaurant north of the Yangtze, popular for its cream cakes and tea dances. Liddel helped build the Minyuan Stadium at Wudadao, copied from London's Chelsea football ground. Teams, such as Tianjin TEDA FC, played there until 2014 when it was renovated into today's cultural and recreational facility.
