This video will bring you back to 1975 Singapore for 7 lovely minutes

This is the closest you will get to a time machine.

An 8mm silent film of various sights of 1975 Singapore has been making its rounds on Facebook.

It apparently belongs to a French couple whose itinerary included visiting Raffles Hotel, riding a bus through Chinatown, visiting an unnamed village, and taking a boat out to sea. And kudos to them, they decided to film it all down for posterity.

Can you spot aspects of Singapore in the video which remain unchanged even till this day?
