That is OUTSTANDING work!

The Woodside Flats were between Pitsmoor & Pye Bank Roads - the southernmost would have been roundabout where the magenta lines meet on the map section above. Looking at it again however, I think the Catholic Church spire would probably be seen virtually above the law courts when viewed from there. A bit more consideration of the sightlines (shown in blue below) suggest the photo was taken from the ground to the west (map right), though my recollection is of that being quite a bit lower than Pye Bank and I'm not sure it would be sufficiently elevated to permit the vista seen.
