Looks like...

...Lower East Side of New York about the same time, only cleaner and not as crowded. At least in this alley, anyway.

Looks like Hamburg

Could be the so-called "Gängeviertel" (Alley Ward).

More photos here.

All in German, I'm afraid.

Looks like Germany

I'll take a guess ... this looks like a city in Northern Germany, possibly Hamburg. The open casement windows on all the houses are the biggest indicator for me. They are probably double casements: one set of windows opens into the house, the other opens out to the street.
