Cableland: An amateur photo tour

In 1998, cable television Entrepreneur Bill Daniels bequeathed his behemoth mansion on Shangri-La Drive (across from the Target in Glendale) to the city of Denver, to be used as the official residence for the Mayor. Though no Mayor has ever actually lived in this mauve monstrosity since its donation, Mayor Bill Vidal utilized it last night for the first Cableland Cultural Jam, a gathering of students and local artists and performers. We took the opportunity to take a look inside this living relic of 1980s architectural wonder.

Like the lost set of Scarface, Cableland has all the style and amenities -- including textured wallpaper and wall-mounted toilet telephones -- of an era of excess. Please enjoy our amateur tour, in the photos below.
