"I realise it's hard to ascertain from a photo"
From a high-resolution photo (or closeups of area s with lots of detail, like grass), we could probably tell if you if it is _not_ from the original blocks - although I have seen one Hiroshige that was so close to the original it was hard to tell (but I eventually concluded it was a deliberate fake - the copies usually don't put very much work into making the fine details like grass, etc, match exactly).
