I didn't think I recognised this set but could this be the FDM El Paso set, Mortimer's hotel on the right, and a wooden facade constructed over the Bank of El Paso?

The camera is where the fire station is now at Mini Hollywood.

Leone very often returned to locations that he'd used before, but would then shoot them in a subtly different way to create what seemed to be an entirely new location.
Look closely at his Sword & Sandal movies and you'll be amused to see places that eventually got re-used in his Westerns

It was the new face on the bank that threw me until I recently realised it was the El Paso set from FDM.  As you say from different angles you get the impression that  it is different towns. I think in GBU it was used in :

Tuco hanging scene
Maria the prostitute's hotel scene
Tuco walks into town over rope bridge scene
Tuco tries to hang Blondie in hotel scene
