Judging by the height the photo was taken and the construction work on the right, it's possibly when the blocks of high rise flats were being built. The ones they knocked down a few years back.

I think the white building just right of centre might be the old "Crooked Billet" Pub on Old Chester road.

Yes Chris, thats Sidney Road your looking down. The flats that are under construction in the photo where been built in the first half of the 60s, between 1960 and 63.

The Quigly Street Flats, if the did not know and jumped over the wall at the bottom right hand side of those flats you ended up with a broken leg or ankle as there was a long drop on the other side on to a piece of land at the corner of Farm Road and Peel Street. In the back entry of the houses in Farm road was a flight of steps which took you up to the ground floor level of Quigly Street flats.
