Change Alley in Singapore from the 80s

This image is labelled as one of many pictures of Singapore in 1968. Which is a load of bollocks. The Change Alley street sign shows the postal code ‘0104’. Singapore moved to a four-digital postal code system in 1979. There’s no way this postal code would have existed 11 years prior.

Clearly, the Vintage News website seems to exist mostly as a vessel for showing shitty ads alongside content of questionable origin and is not as a bastion of historic truth. But I am now asking myself if any of the pictures they’ve labelled as ‘Singapore in 1968’ are even from Singapore in the first place.
